During a high velocity impact of a structure on an incompressible fluid, impulse loads with high pressure peaks occur. This physical phenomenon called 'slamming' is a concern in the shipbuilding industry because of the possibility of hull damage. Shipbuilding companies are carrying out several studies on the slamming modeling using FEM software. This paper presents the prediction of the local high pressure load on a wedge striking a free surface. The fluid-structure interaction is simulated bydoi:10.1115/pvp2003-2063 fatcat:askgzru66ndnlm4qhixp6ttyp4
