Abstract
    Water wave slamming can be considered as the most critical load that marine structures experience. Elastic deformability of these structures can have a significant influence on the slamming behaviour. Comparison of a rigid and deformable cylinder with the same dimensions can result in very relevant information in this field. In this paper, the first steps towards this comparison are undertaken: an experimental test set-up is presented, the test objects are defined, sensors are chosen and tested, and numerical models are proposed. Finally, first results from experimental tests and numerical simulations on a rigid cylindrical body are presented.
