Solid-solid and solid-fluid impacts and bouncing are the concern here. A theoretical study is presented on fluid-body interaction in which the motion of the body and the fluid influence each other nonlinearly. There could also be many bodies involved. The clashing refers to solid-solid impacts arising from fluid-body interaction in a channel, while the skimming refers to another area where a thin body impacts obliquely upon a fluid surface. Bouncing usually then follows in both areas. The main new contribution concerns the influences of thickness and camber which lead to a different and more general form of clashing and hence bouncing.
