ONR’s directorates balance a robust science and technology (S&T) portfolio, allocating funds to meet the warfighter's requirements.
Researchers Seek 'Wave Slam' Solutions
Earlier this month, scientists sponsored by the Office of Naval Research performed experiments to better understand the motions, forces and pressures generated by waves on boats with high-speed planing hulls. Like those used on speedboat, these hulls are designed to produce lift and allow the watercraft to glide on top of the water, skimming more quickly over its surface.
The higher the wave crests, the more high-speed boats will rise to the top of the wave and then fall back down to the wave’s trough with great force. It's called wave slam | Video: See tests on YouTube
