An efficient Monte Carlo method is developed to perform the stochastic analysis of slamming loads on marine structures. The probability distribution of the maximum impact force during slamming is established for a given stationary sea state. The method is demonstrated by using a uniform wedge and Wagner’s flat plate theory. Stochastic effects related to deadrise angle, flow separation from the knuckle, vertical position of the structure, vertical motion and roll motion are investigated. The statistics of other parameters such as the duration of the slamming event and the maximum penetration of the structure into water are also assessed.
