Abstract

A 3D water entry of a typical bow model of river-to-sea ship is studied experimentally. A large number of systematic experiments have been performed for the bow model with different pitch angles. Considering various pitch angles and impact velocities in the model tests, the slamming pressure distributions on the bottom of the bow are presented and discussed. The measured slamming pressures on the bow are identified in terms of the maximum slamming coefficient. The effects of the pitch angle and impact velocity on slamming pressure are discussed as well, based on the experimental measurements. It is shown that the slamming load on the bottom of the model increases as the pitch angle decreases in most cases. With a higher impact velocity, the coefficient of the maximum slamming pressure is smaller for most of the tested cases.
