The mathematics of ship slamming

Abstract:

Motivated by the motion of a ship in a heavy sea, a mathematical model for the vertical impact of a two-dimensional solid body onto a half-space of quiescent, inviscid, incompressible fluid is formulated. No solutions to the full problem are known, but in the case when the impacting body has small deadrise angle (meaning that the angle between the tangent to the profile and the horizontal is everywhere small) a uniformly valid solution is obtained by using the method of matched as...
