    Impact analysis of object free-falling to glass plate

    Howard Dando

      I'm looking for step by step instructions on how to set-up and run an Analysis of a steel ball free-falling and impacting a glass window plate.

      I understand that this is not a drop test, rather an impact analysis; where a ball of a specific size and mass falls via gravity at a specific distance from the window, impacts the glass window. Where the result is the stress induced on the window; from which I can determine if the glass fails.

      I've read older discussions (i.e.Sep 30, 2013 11:40 AM by Jared Conway); but the link in this discussion is no longer valid and or there are no step by step instructions.

      Thank you,
      Howard
