Frictional Impact Controversy over analysis of frictional impact: Coulombs law of friction. Poissons hypothesis of restitution. Law of energy conservation. Impulse accumulation – Rouths method (1913) Hardly applicable in 3D, where impulse builds along a curve. Han & Gilmore (1989); Wang & Mason (1991); Ahmed et al. (1999) Keller (1986) – differential equation often with no closed form solution.

Simultaneous Collisions in 3D No existing impact laws are known to model well. Stewart & Trinkle (1996); Anitescu & Porta (1997) Chatterjee & Ruina (1998); High-speed photographs shows >2 objects simultaneously in contact during collision. Lack of a continuous impact law. We introduce a new model: Collision as a state sequence. Within each state, a subset of impacts are active. A new law of restitution overseeing the loss of elastic energy rather than growth of impulse (Poissons law).

Two-Ball Collision Problem: One rigid ball impacts another resting on the table. Q: Ball velocities after the impact? contact points virtual springs (kinematics) (dynamics)

Impulse Impact happens in infinitesimal time. Use impulse: Velocities in terms of impulses

Elastic Energies Stored by the two virtual springs at contacts. Dependent on the impulses: Relationship between the two impulses: relative stiffness Governing differential equation of the impact.

Compression An impact starts with compression (of the virtual spring). 2 1 2 The phase ends when the spring length stops decreasing. The virtual spring stores energy. Maximum elastic energy.

Restitution The virtual spring releases energy. Poissons law of impact: Compression Restitution Impulse coefficient of restitution

State Transition Diagram The two impacts almost never start or end restitution at the same time. An impact may be reactivated after restitution.

Energe-Based Restitution Law Poissons law based on impulse is inadequate because Impulse & elastic energy for one impact also depend on the impulse for the other. Not enough elastic energy left to provide the impulse increment during restitution. Our model : limit the amount of energy released during restitution to be a fixed ratio of that accumuluated during compression.

A Couple of Theorems Theorem 1 (Stiffness Ratio) : Outcome of collision depends on but not on their individual values. Theorem 2 (Bounding Ellipse) : The impulses satisfy Inside an ellipse!

Example kgm/s -3 0.61 0.36 0.97 0 2.44 -0.12 2.44 0.74 ball-ball ball-table compression lines

Energe Curve energy loss of lower ball ending restitution total loss of energy: 1.2494.

Convergence : impulses at the end of the ith state. monotone nondecreasing. bounded within the ellipse. Sequence : Theorem 3 (Convergence) : The state transition will either terminate or the sequence will converge with either or.
