The ONR I Lehigh slamming load test facility, a.k.a. Numerette, was upgraded with more piezo-resistive film pressure sensors, single-point pressure sensors, accelerometers, an additional inertia navigation system, and L YDTs. New tests were performed in the Atlantic Ocean and further insight into slamming was gained. Three items were studied in more detail - vertical rigid body accelerations, the effect of bottom stiffness on slamming response, and wavelet analysis of slamming data. Data have been continuously provided to the University of Iowa where numerical analyses of the Numerette have been performed.
