Smooth and rough water performance data in the off cushion mode were obtained on a buoyant sidewall SES model over a range of displacements, LCGs, speeds, and sea states. The segmented model was instrumented to measure shear and bending moment at two longitudinal cuts. Loads data in regular waves and in irregular waves of high severity were obtained. Results, together with an analysis of the data, are discussed. Author
