In this paper we present a simple hybrid model of impact dynamics in heat exchangers. The method, based on graph theory and probability theory, enables us to model the variation in global dynamics as measurable local parameters are changed. We find a sudden jump from no to many repeated impacts, in agreement with numerical and experimental evidence.
