In order to clarify the collision phenomenon of the traffic machine in motion, such as automobile and aircraft, it is necessary to examine not only the deformation and the behavior of composed structural member but also the dynamic characteristic of friction coefficient and restitution coefficient in the collided contact surface. In this study, the restitution coefficient was estimated from the strain waveform measured by collision test using the Air Gun. The velocity and deformation dependence of the restitution coefficient was examined by carrying out the collision test at the different speed. As a result, in the metal test piece, restitution coefficient decreased by the plastic deformation with the increasing of the collision speed, and the velocity dependence was confirmed.
