AbstractThis report presents a set of tests that were done in the Offshore Engineering Basin at the Institute for Ocean Technology. These tests were conducted to examine the performance of a Marine Evacuation Slide System. Marine evacuation systems are often relied on for evacuation from offshore structures or vessels in emergency situations. The experimental program considered a variety of deployment scenarios and sea state conditions. This report includes a discussion of the test set-up, a review of the test results, and conclusions arising from the data analysis. The procedure for running these tests as well as the process of analyzing the data is also reviewed. The results from the test program can help ensure an appropriate performance level for slide systems, as well as identify any weak areas where improvement may be possible or necessary.
