This paper deals with the slamming phenomenon for deformable structures. In a first part, a three-dimensional hydrodynamic problem is solved numerically with the Finite Element Method. The results for a rigid body are successfully compared to the analytical solutions. After the numerical analysis, an experimental investigation is presented. It consists in series of free fall drop-tests of rigid, deformable cones shaped models with different deadrise angle and thickness. Distribution of the pressure and its evolution are analyzed. Numerical and experimental results are compared and present good agreement.
