The dynamic contact problem of a rigid, smooth striker impacting an elastically supported beam is solved. Use is made of the superposition of an elastic layer solution together with an elementary beam theory solution that incorporates the dynamic effects. The problem is formulated in such a manner as to require the solution of a Volterra integral equation for each time increment. Numerical results are presented for various parameters.
