Comparison of experimental and numerical loads on an impacting bow section

Record type: Article


Impact pressures, due to slamming, are of particular importance in assessing local and global structural strength. Knowledge of pressure distribution and slamming forces, 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 and slamming forces for a bow section, impacting upright and at two angles of heel are 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.
