TypeTechnical Report
Series titleContractor Report
Subjectslamming; bow form; bow emergence
AbstractThis report describes the program SLAM based on the earlier work done by George L. Petrie of Webb Institute under a contract from SNAME. This program computes the slam factors for forward sections of ships and integrates them with weighting function based on the probability of bow emergence so as to obtain a "bottom slamming coefficient" for a vessel in a given sea state.
