Impact pressures, due to slamming, are of particular importance in assessing local and global structural strength. Knowledge of pressure distribution, experimental or numerical, in the forefoot and aftbody of a ship can be used in the evaluation of global wave-induced loads, e.g. whipping bending moment. Impact pressures for the cases of (i) a symmetric wedge impact and (ii) a bow section impact (both symmetric and asymmetric, i.e. section impacting upright and at an angle of roll) will be presented in this paper. The relevant impact loads are predicted using a range of 2D potential and viscous flow methods and compared with available experimental measurements for both cases.
