In this paper we consider a coupled system of elastic and rigid bodies. It can be mathematically formulated as a coupled system of ordinary and partial differential equations, often written in its weak form. The discretisation is performed by a Galerkin-type ansatz in connection with a finite element approach or known eigenfunctions. Here, we demonstrate instead the use of a recently published Galerkin-wavelet method and its application to obtain a reasonable,small number of elastic modes.
