Abstract:

Experimental measurement of shear force and bending moment of a segmented SES model operating in regular waves in the off-cushion mode. Detailed presentation of experimental results intended for correlation with computer simulation, in both digital and graphical form are included. Results are discussed and it is concluded that the hydrodynamic effects are dominated by structural response of the model. A more direct experimental method of validating the theory is recommended.
