Abstract : The report presents the results of an investigation on ship slamming through the use of drop tests of a rectangular elastic plate having two opposite edges hinged and two other edges free. The test program was conducted to verify use of the theoretical methods proposed in an earlier report for the solution of elastic response of a ship bottom to slamming loads. The report provides the theoretical solutions for a rectangular elastic plate, using the mathematical approximations, and then compares the solutions with the experimental data obtained from an actual drop test.
