AbstractThis report presents a re-analysis of data obtained during experiments on a damaged Ro-Ro ferry model. The objective was to provide data to validate a numerical simulation of the steady water depth, which accumulates on the deck. The results of the experiments are compared with the predictions. The report also presents data on the maximum waveheight on the deck in relation to the height of partial bulkheads.
