DEVELOPMENT OF AN INSTRUMENTATION PACKAGE TO RECORD FULL-SCALE SHIP SLAM DATA

An instrumentation set has been developed for use in investigating the slamming experience of a full-scale ship. Methods for treating both bow-flare and bottom-slamming have been considered. A radar altimeter was used to sense the relative height of the wave at the transducer location in order to determine the relative velocity between the bottom or the bow of the ship and the wave at the instant of slam.
