    Abstract

    The minimum plate thickness requirements specified by the classification societies for high-speed craft are supposed to ensure adequate resistance to impact loads such as collision with floating objects and objects falling on the deck. The paper presents analytical methods of describing such impact phenomena and proposes performance requirements instead of thickness requirements for hull panels in high-speed craft made of different building materials.
