This paper focuses on a one-dimensional wave equation being subjected to a unilateral boundary condition. Under appropriate regularity assumptions on the initial data, a new proof of existence and uniqueness results is proposed. The mass redistribution method, which is based on a redistribution of the body mass such that there is no inertia at the contact node, is introduced and its convergence is proved. Finally, some numerical experiments are reported.doi:10.1051/m2an/2013133 fatcat:xes2hgjigrfnjkb67olmungxzm
