Slamming is an important design consideration for high-speed craft. Much research has been conducted on the slamming pressures on high-speed hulls, however the measurement and prediction of the corresponding strain-field has been difficult. In this paper, a simplified analytical approach is proposed as a design tool that is computationally less costly than a robust Fluid-Structure Interaction simulation. An analytical flat cylinder formulation was used to calculate the pressure coefficient along the bottom of a rigid V-shaped hull impacting calm water at different time steps. Static-structural analysis is performed at each time step to obtain the deformation and strain fields in the hull.
