The coefficient of restitution is one of the major parameters that characterize a collision process. The experimental evaluation requires a series of distinctive aspects. The paper presents the influence produced by the materials of the colliding bodies and their geometries on the coefficient of restitution.

Keywords: coefficient of restitution, curvature radius, experimental values
