Unique solvability of the problem of impact with separation of a rigid body on a nonhomogeneous fluid. (Russian) Zbl 1299.76020

Summary: We study the motion of a fluid, which is caused by a blow on a solid floating in that fluid. The fluid is assumed to be incompressible and inhomogeneous. The problem reduces to a nonlinear mixed boundary value problem for the elliptic equation \(\text{div}\,(\frac1\rho\text{grad}\,\varphi)=0\), where \(\rho=\rho(x)\) is a given density, and \(\varphi\) is the impulsive pressure in the fluid. Using the technology of variational inequalities, we prove the existence and uniqueness of the generalized solution.
