Could escript solve the Dynamic impact problem?

Asked by Wang Yu on 2020-05-22

I am new to escript and I want to simulate the case of rock hitting some kind of cushion.
The interaction between rock and cushion may use Penalty contact method (used in Abaqus) or any other method.

Is escript possible to do this? Or can you give me some ideas and references?

Thanks

In general: No. It has been used to model fault systems in Earthquakes but this case allows many simplifiying assumptions such as small tangential displacements relative to contact length, no penetration and static contact zone.
