This study analyzes the impact of vanes on rotor slots in a sliding vane rotary compressor that is simulated by impact of two plates. The Hertzian contact rule and the first order shear deformation plate theory with consideration of the shear deformation and the rotary inertia are utilized to generate a mathematical model. Impact forces when a vane locates at various locations and time are calculated. The calculated results are compared and show good agreement with those obtained by using ABAQUS software.
