The review of bottom slamming phenomena was undertaken to assure that maximum value will be gleaned from recorded data obtained on the SS Wolverine State. The review covers experimental laboratory and ship data and their correlation with available theory and structural implications and possible design improvements. Although there are certain areas in the theory which require expansion, the most pressing need is for additional full-scale experimental data to provide confirmation of existing analytical techniques.
