Within the Sloshel Joint Industrial Project, a new full scale wave impact test campaign has been carried out in April 2010. During one of the last tests of the campaign a flip-through type of impact was generated and very high local pressures were measured. The horizontal small corrugations of the membrane were significantly deformed but no permanent deformation of the foam was observed by initial visual inspection. This paper describes the main lessons obtained from this flip-through impact, through measurements related to the hydrodynamic loads, and through the structural response of the different components of the Mark III panel.
