Experimental investigations were performed in order to verify the maximum impact force and the time function of the central deflection which were derived by a simplified theory. This theory is only applicable in the short time interval after contact when the stresses in the vicinity of the contact point are only a function of the interaction between the colliding bodies. It will be assumed that the reflected elastic waves have no influence on these stresses. The maximum impact force can be expected to occur in this time interval.
