This project aims at addressing the lack of high-quality three-dimensional data suitable for benchmarking offshore structures and advanced marine vehicles impacting with water in a 3D regime, as well as establishing an understanding of the key elements influencing the severity of slamming loads. It also aims to evaluate the accuracy of numerical techniques by utilising Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations to predict the magnitude of wetdeck slamming forces and pressure distributions, thus allowing designers to improve the fixed, floating and moving marine structure
