Air-cushioning in impact problems

Abstract:
This paper concerns the displacement potential formulation to study the post-impact influence of an aircushioning layer on the two-dimensional impact of a liquid half-space by a rigid body. The liquid and air are both ideal and incompressible and attention is focussed on cases when the density ratio between the air and liquid is small. In particular, the correction to classical Wagner theory is analysed in detail for the impact of circular cylinders and wedges.
