    Inelastic Collision Question

    So Ive found that using modulation and simulation techniques and using the program Simulink can model my problem accurately. The issue now is that I am new to Simulink and unfamiliar with the program. I must model a 2 body collision in Simulink. Physically, I have an object hitting another...

    Inelastic Collision Question

    Does anyone know of any inelastic impact / collision equations or theories that somehow incorporate a spring constant or Modulus of Elasticity? I have a problem where I need to show how changing a different material (ie. a different Elasticity) will affect the velocity after impact. The...

    Inelastic collisions and material properties

    We are using the following equation for a 1-D inelastic equation; v1= [(Cr+1)M2V2+V1(M1-CrM2)] / [m1+m2] We know everything besides Cr from testing. v1=1.95 m/s , v2=-.75 m/s , m1=mass spool =7.85 g , m2=mass endcap = 33.5g So Ive solved for Cr, but get a very different number than...

    Inelastic collisions and material properties

    I am in the middle of a large project as an undergrad mech. engineering student and my team and I are having some modeling issues. Here is a description of our task: We must modify the design of a digital spool valve for a company. We have a spool, and 2 electro-magnetic endcaps that the...
