Abstract
This paper is addressed to the characterisation of slamming loads acting on fast monohull vessels, gathering the results
of several years of research in numerical simulation, model-scale and full-scale measurements. As a case study attention
was focused on a large fast ferry designed and built by Fincantieri. Extensive model-tests were carried out by MARIN
within the framework of the BE III Project SEAWORTH. In the first year of service of the ship a monitoring campaign
was further performed by CETENA collecting full-scale data on ship motions, stresses and slamming pressures.
