In recent work the author presented a systematic formulation of hybrid parameter multiple body mechanical systems (HPMBS) undergoing contact/impact motion. The method rigorously models all motion regimes of hybrid multiple body systems (i.e., free motion, contact/impact motion, and constrained motion), utilizing minimal sets of hybrid differential equations; Lagrange multipliers are not required. The contact/impact regime was modeled via the idea of instantaneously applied nonholonomic constraints. The technique previously presented did not include the possibility of continuum assumptions along the lines of Timoshenko beams, higher order plate theories, or rational theories considering intrinsic spin-inertia. In this technical brief, the above-mentioned method is extended to include the higher-order continuum assumptions which eliminates the continuum shortfalls from the previous work. The main contributions of this work include: 1) the previous work is rigorously extended, and 2) the fact that coefficients of restitution are not required for modeling the momentum exchange between motion regimes of HPMBS. The field and boundary equations provide the needed extra equations that are used to supply post-collision pointwise relationships for the generalized velocities and velocity fields.
