Hi guys,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can you help me with my problem please? if a steel ball 10 kg falls from 1 metre (free fall) and hits a concrete beam, how can I solve a single degree of freedom system to get the impact force and compare it with the test?

Acceleration of the steel ball is known (so impact force can be calculated)

Mid-span displacement of the beam is known as well.

Thanks.
