I am looking for a little guidance with relation to trying to find the initial and impact velocity of a section of a steel casting if it shears.

Given the results of stress analysis, the mass of the sheared section would be 200kg maximum.

The input force at that would be 2,500kN at the point of shear.

The section would travel 0.5m before it contacted an obstruction.

The area of contact would be 0.1m/sq

Any help is much appreciated.
