The paper presents the results of an experimental investigation of the shipping of water on the bow of a containership. Model tests were carried out in head regular and irregular waves of large amplitude, and measurements were taken of: the absolute and relative motions, the structural loads, the height of water and the impact pressure on the deck, and the horizontal impact pressure and total force on the first line of containers on the bow.
