A model having a heavy beam loading and angle of dead rise 30 degree was subjected to smooth-water impacts in the Langley impact basin. The tests were made at fixed trims of 6, 15, 30, and 45 degrees for a range of flight-path angles from approximately 2 to 22 degrees. The beam-loading coefficient (18.8) was constant throughout the test.
