Abstract

The Hunt and Crossley model has been demonstrated to give accurate predictions of contact force generated by the impact of a solid object. The simulated contact force values have been demonstrated to match closely with experimental results as reported in the literature. However, derivation of the expression for finding the value of the damping coefficient has never been presented. The writing of this paper was motivated by the need to fill in the important knowledge gap.
