Grahic Jump Location
Schematic of a closed loop of inextensible string which is in contact with a mass-spring-dashpot system. The contact of the system and the string occurs at the material point ξ=γ(t) of the string. The system shown in this figure is similar to those discussed in 123456.

Schematic of a closed loop of inextensible string which experiences a singular supply of momentum F at the point ξ=γ. The system shown in this figure can be considered a generalization of that shown in Fig. 1.
