Three methods of finding waves forces on large, rigid axisymmetric stationary objects in the sea are examined. The problem is formulated in terms of an integral equation and the three methods are successive approximations, direct calculations by means of simultaneous algebraic equations, and use of M.D. Haskind's relations. The latter method is included as it offers a large saving of computational efforts for axisymmetric bodies. The applicability of the methods is studied from both the theoretical and applied points of view. Numerical results are given for submerged and floating spheres and for shapes comprising a vertical surface-piercing cylinder atop a sphere.
