Impact Between Two Soft Rings
Application ID: 88311
In this conceptual example, the soft impact between two elastic rings is modeled using the Solid Mechanics interface. One of the rings is given an initial velocity to initiate the impact event. Both rings are unconstrained and not subjected to any external forces. Contact is modeled using a viscous formulation with both the penalty and augmented Lagrangian techniques. The conservation of linear and angular momentum as well as energy is verified.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
- COMSOL Multiphysics® and
- either the MEMS Module, Multibody Dynamics Module, or Structural Mechanics Module
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
