Considerable progress in the various phases of slamming and impact has been reported, particularly (a) a method of prediction of necessary information on slamming characteristics and hull responses at an early design stage using only the ship's lines plan; (b) significant number of model experiments as well as full-scale trials have been carried out concerning impacts on ship bow flare, and counter-measures to prevent structural damage; (c) formulae to evaluate the amount of damage (dishing) which may occur from the inelastic behavior of the ship bottom plating have been presented; (d) dynamic loads associated with liquid cargo sloshing problems have been studied analytically and experimentally, and useful design information for tanks of modern cargo ships, such as LNG, OBO, etc., has been provided; (e) efforts have been made to solve impact problems associated with various types of high performance craft which are somewhat different from those observed on more conventional ships, and design criteria have been formulated for some specific problems, such as the impact on the bottom of the cross structure of a catamaran. Continuation of comprehensive seakeeping model experiments to characterize impacts on various types of vessel is recommended.
