Abstract:

This report summarizes key parameters for characterizing the vertical force associated with wave impacts in high-speed planing craft. The amplitude of the total force for each impact is presented in terms of a rigid body acceleration pulse that can be simulated in laboratory drop tests to evaluate the efficacy of passive shock mitigation seats.
