This article illustrates two inverse methods to estimate the local slamming forces on a jacket structure. The experimental data from the hammer test and the wave test are used as the inputs. One method uses two deconvolution techniques: a conjugate gradient technique to solve the impulse response functions and a weighted eigenvector expansion technique to reconstruct the wave impact forces. The other method uses linear regression with the ordinary least square technique to estimate the wave impact forces. The results calculated with these two different methods are highly identical, which enhances the confidence in the result accuracy. The time series of the reconstructed forces are detailed at a millisecond level, which provides decent information on the shape of the forces. This capability enables the methods to be a very useful tool for the further investigations of the local slamming forces.
