Grahic Jump Location
Restitution coefficients for the half-period K-V and Maxwell models (dotted), modified K-V (solid), and standard linear impact model (numerical results) where η=0.0 (solid), 0.05 (long-dashed), 0.2 (short-dashed), and 0.4 (short-long-dashed)
Grahic Jump Location
Hysteresis diagrams for the Kelvin-Voigt (solid), Maxwell (dotted), and standard linear impact models with ωn=1 and ζ=0.1 where η=0.0 (solid), 0.05 (long-dashed), 0.2 (short-dashed), and 0.4 (short-long-dashed). The modified K-V and standard linear models omit the tension at the conclusion of the restitution phase of impact.
