As a step towards complex impact loads cases, e.g. lifeboat drop tests or ship/platform slamming in waves, a verification and validation (V&V) study is carried out with an open-usage community based CFD code ReFRESCO for a simple impact load test case: a captive axisymmetric generic lifeboat shape (bullet) that penetrates the water surface at a constant velocity and angle of attack.
