As part of a program to study the effects of transverse and longitudinal curvature on impact loads of chine-immersed models, a V-bottom model having a dead-rise angle of 30 degrees and the forward half longitudinally curved upward on a radius of 10 beams has been tested at the Langley impact basin. Impacts were made in smooth water at a beam-loading coefficient of 18.8 with the trim angle held fixed throughout each impact.
