A methodology for calculating the impact interaction between an active element and a deformable barrier is developed on the basis of approximated analytical results. As an active element is considered a hemisphere smoothly shaped into a cylinder. Results from calculations using the proposed methodology are applied. The examples presented here are two extreme cases of interaction that differ from each other by the initial angle of contact of the active element with the barrier.
