The pressure, acceleration, and hull bending stress data from the full-scale slamming measurements on the S.S. WOLVERINE STATE were analyzed in detail to provide additional information on frequency-of-occurrence, elapsed time between slams, correlation with environmental conditions, pressure-velocity relationship, correlation with midship transient stress, and pressure-location-time distribution. Seventeen separate measurements were made on a group of 26 severe slams to provide a data base for the investigation, and data from more than 1,000 slams which occurred over approximately 49 hours of slamming during 3 different voyages were used in establishing the correlation with environmental conditions. A number of statistical correlations were examined, and pressure-velocity measurements provided additional data for comparison with model results.
