Abstract : This bibliography was formulated during the development of the Ship Structure Committee report: Hydrodynamic Impact Loading on Displacement Ship Hulls, An Assessment of the State of the Art, by Dr. John C. Daidola and Dr. Victor Mishkevich. The report provides a comprehensive assessment of the state of the art of hydrodynamic impact loading on displacement ship hulls. The subject is considered in light of the three distinct phenomena of slamming, wave slap, and frontal impact. Factors leading to hydro-dynamic impact are defined in terms of environmental and vessel characteristics. The theories of impact are reviewed in sub-categories of two and three dimensional analytical hydrodynamic models, hydroelastic models, seakeeping theory, model tests and full scale data. The techniques and procedures identified which lend themselves to analysis and potential design application are identified and described, the characteristics of each summarized, and example calculations relating the techniques and procedures presented. The report concludes with recommendations for future research.
