E/g The speed of sound in the bar is a =
= 202,721 in/sec, hence time t1 = /a = 0.0493288 sec. A static solution
is done at the first load step. The final time of 0.06 sec allows the bar to impact (at to = 0.0064 sec) and reach its
maximum deflection (at t = to + t1). The gap stiffness (k = 30,000,000 lb/in) is arbitrarily selected high enough to
minimize the elastic contact deformation but low enough to also allow a practical integration time step size.
Seventeen longitudinal master degrees of freedom (MDOF) are selected along the length of the bar. The integration time step size (ITS = 0.0001 sec) is based on the shortest period (during contact) t...
