STUDY ON WAVE IMPACT LOAD ON SHIP BOW

Three-dimensional semi-cylindrical 1/3-scale bow models were subjected to drop tests in a water impact generating tower in order to evaluate the characteristics of wave impact pressure acting on the bows of very large ships and to investigate their structural response. The models were dropped on the still water surface from various heights (5 m at the maximum) at small relative angle (0 deg, 5 deg, and 15 deg). The total drop weight was 10 tons each time. The results obtained were evaluated by comparing them with the results of analytical inspections of the actually damaged ship bows.
