This report presents a new deterministic approach to analyzing wave impact data for high speed planning hulls. Full scale data is presented that illustrates how individual wave encounters may be defined and categorized according to impact sequence of events, and that the peak accelerations may vary linearly with defined parameters for subsets of wave slam types. The report builds on lessons learned from historical stochastic analysis methods, and provides a new analysis process that enhances the understanding of key elements associated with craft seaworthiness, including hull design loads, component ruggedness, and crew or passenger comfort and safety.
