AbstractIn June 2001, a first impact field study was accomplished where loads in the range of 5MN were measured resulting from a bregy bit / ship collision. A second Impact field study is taking place at the moment in which a unique impact panel is being designed. The new pressure sensing technology introduced to the panel allows the determination of accurate loads and pressure distribution. The impact panel contains an effective lighting system allowing a high-speed camera to record all the required data. The impact panel uses the interlocking method in its design, thus having a high stability and the capability to withstand loads in the range of 20 MN.
