In this study, individual particle impact behaviors of soft particle on hard substrate were observed. The ratio of bonds was compared to the difference between adhesion and rebound energies. To improve the existing model, the equation for effective yield strength was modified and finite element analysis was applied to estimate the temperature and strain gradients. The energy difference was derived from the strain and temperature of the elements and compared to the experimental ratio of bonds.
