AN ANALYTICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL STUDY FOR PREDICTION OF SHIP IMPACT FORCES IN A SEAWAY

Analytical and experimental studies have been conducted in an effort to predict the frequency and magnitude of ship slamming. The two dimensional impact model of Verhagen was extended to include ship sections and approximate plate deflections. The solution was related strongly to assumed added mass relations and hull deflections. Long experimental time samples of ship slamming were conducted in the towing tank, and the recorded motions agreed well with current strip theory predictions.
