The Rebound of Elastic Bodies in Oblique Impact

Abstract

The classical problem of rebound is usually treated by assuming that the colliding bodies are rigid and that the coefficient of friction, ~ , is constant. Two contact states can be distinguished: slidinq, in which the ratio of friction force to normal force is equal to ~ , and rolling, in which the friction force is zero. If sliding gives way to rolling… (More)
