This paper is intended to provide a state-of-the-art review of the structural response aspects of slamming. The emphasis is on two specific aspects: (i) hull girder response to slamming and (ii) local structual response to slamming (for example, the forward bottom structure, forecastle deck, bow flare structure, and secondary structure at the bow). Results of drop tests and sea trials are used to illustrate the design procedure for ship bottom plating in the slamming area. The work cited here is considered to have important applications for practical design features of future ships. Several parts still require clarification, and recommendations for additional research are offered.
