At the turn of 2007 full scale wave impact tests have been carried out
by MARIN in the frame of the Sloshel project. Unidirectional breaking
waves were generated in a flume in order to impact an instrumented
transverse wall with embedded test structures. The main goals of these
tests were to study the hydro-elastic effects associated with the NO96
membrane containment system for LNG carriers and to create a sound
database for validation of numerical simulations. The preliminary
results were overviewed in 2009 by Brosset et al. Since then the full
scale tests have been repeated at scale 1 to 6 in order to study the
scaling effects. These tests are referred to as the large scale tests.
