    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    This paper study caries a finite element simulation on metal rings subjected to fixed-end constant loading impacts against hollow spheres with close geometries. The mechanical parameters such as reaction force and strain were analysed and visual data recorded. Different rate of loadings and thicknesses were studied to examine the influence of these factors. The deformation processes of both rings and spheres were analysed and discussed, particularly the mechanism of deformation and load and strain histories for both rings and spheres were compared.
