Description: From Summary: "Equations which include freedom in trim are derived for hydrodynamic impact of a non-chine-immersed, prismatic float forebody having a V-bottom and a transverse step. These equations are an extension of previously published fixed-trim theory, and a method of solution is indicated by which time histories of vertical, horizontal, and angular displacement, velocity, and acceleration can be obtained. Comparisons of specific solutions of the equations with corresponding fixed-trim solutions are presented."
