Statistics and Design Implications of Extreme Peak Vertical Accelerations from Slamming of Small Craft
Inspired by Grimsley et al. (2010) this work began with an examination of the nature of slam data statistical fitting. Specifically, the author wished to extend Grimsley's work with an eye toward appropriate statistical distribution identification for slam responses characterized as an α, β, or C event per Riley et al. (2010). With this information in hand, the author then returns to a discussion of the fundamental work by Fridsma (1969, 1971), Allen and Jones (1978), Jones and Allen (1972), and others to discuss the implications of nonexponentially distributed slam data on small craft design.

More about this publication?
- Original and timely technical papers addressing problems of shipyard techniques and production of merchant and naval ships appear in this quarterly publication. Since its inception, the Journal of Ship Production and Design (formerly the Journal of Ship Production) has been a forum for peer-reviewed, professionally edited papers from academic and industry sources. As such it has influenced the worldwide development of ship production engineering as a fully qualified professional discipline. The expanded scope seeks papers in additional areas, specifically ship design, including design for production, plus other marine technology topics, such as ship operations, shipping economics, and safety. Each issue contains a well-rounded selection of technical papers relevant to marine professionals.
