Gas cushioning in liquid-solid impacts

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The normal impact of a rigid, shallow body of small deadrise angle with an incompressible, inviscid liquid is investigated. Models of pre-impact air cushioning prior to touchdown are constructed for both parabolic and wedge shaped bodies. These models produce a system of integro-differential equations describing the free-surface and pressure evolution, which is investigated numerically. As impact approaches a pressure build-up occurs in the gas, as the gas is forced out of the path of impactor. This leads to pre-impact free-surface deformations, delays in touchdown and a pocket of gas trapped beneath the impactor, which have consequences for the post-touchdown impact behaviour.
