WAVE INDUCED BENDING MOMENT DUE TO SHIP SLAMMING

A mathematical formulation of the overall ship's response to bottom impact slamming in regular waves is developed. The hydrodynamic problem concerning the definition of the loads is first discussed, and a particular physical model is adopted for finding the hull vibratory behavior. Based on the given formulation a general procedure leading to the time history representation of the midship's bending moment is suggested. Finally, an illustrative example of application to a Mariner ship is described and the results compared with available data.
