Water wave impact on a wet deck is an important issue in ocean engineering, and the plate-shaped structure in the splash zone tends to suffer tremendous impact loads. This work presents a method for predicting the wave slamming uplift force on a fixed plate with different inclined angles. Both numerical simulation and the scale model test of the wave impact loads on an inclined plate were performed, and a good agreement was obtained. In addition, the influence of three important wave parameters on the slamming uplift force was systematically investigated: relative deck width B/LS, relative wave height Δh/H1/3, and the plate’s inclined angle α. The results indicate that the three parameters can significantly influence the wave slamming uplift force. Finally, a developed empirical equation is proposed for estimating the wave slamming uplift force on the inclined plate. View Full-Text
