Laboratory Testing of Full Scale Lifeboat : Pendulum Tests

Allison Kennedy
A set of experiments were designed and conducted using a modified 20-person TEMPSC. The experiments involved suspending ice spheres from a line acting as a pendulum. Thesphere was then set at a specified angle, and allowed to freefall in the pendulum’s naturalarc until impact with the panel. The lifeboat modifications included the installation of port and starboard acrylic impact panels in the hull. These panels were mounted on force dynamometers in the bow area of...
