Transient Structural Impact Simulation Using Altair SimLab

In this tutorial one wants to find out if a round Plexiglas (acrylic) plate will be damaged if it suffers from the impact of a steel ball, which was dropped from a height of 1m. Assume the steel ball is 0.24 meters in diameter, and the Plexiglas plate is 1 meter in diameter and 0.05 meters thick. Assuming that the Plexiglas plate is glued to the floor.
