Plastic Collision. When the ball has plastic deformation due to the collision, according to the Tresca criterion, when the impact force is p = 1.6Y, the ball will yield deformation, where Y is the yield value of the unidirectional tensile ball, and the formula for calculating the yield force of the ball at Y point is obtained:
By the method of theoretical analysis, based on the symmetrical collision condition of a single solid with a buffer, the elastic and plastic collision characteristics of a solid filling material and a buffer during a Hertz collision period were analyzed.
