As the new generation of high-speed crafts become larger and faster, slamming impact loads on vessels are a critical design concern. Slamming impact load is one of the most critical factors for the scantling design of hull structures. ABS is continuously refining prescriptive rules analysis procedures, numerical tools, and the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) method.
