The paper presents the development and solution of the differential equations of motion of an elastically connected double-beam system subjected to an impulsive load. In addition to the theory there is presented a description of impact experiments on double beams. Theoretically and experimentally determined strains as functions of time are compared in the form of curves. The agreement is remarkably good for the type of load used.
