Abstract: The impact and hydrodynamic characteristics of water entry associated with prismatic bodies with different fore section shapes and entry angles were investigated. Of particular interest here are the hydrodynamic loading at the instant of impact and the generation of splashes under water cavity formation, etc., after the impact. Entry angles of 15° to 165° in steps of 15° were investigated. The results were compared with standard axisymmetric prismatic body shape.The launching system in the laboratory consists of a compressed air chamber and a solenoid valve. Transient loading on the fore section of the prismatic body was measured with triaxial accelerometer. Splashes, cavity formation and closure procedures were observed with high speed photography and video recording.
