Abstract:

The report offers a hydrodynamic discussion of slamming for the use of naval architects. The effects of recognized parameters in naval architecture are studied. The theoretical investigation, based on the concepts of added mass, of impulsive pressure, and on Wagners theory of impact, results in formulas for estimating forces and pressure distribution on bottoms of nonzero deadrise angle. An outline for further theoretical and experimental research is given and some preliminary experiments are reported. Author
