WAVE DIFFRACTION EFFECTS IN HEAD SEAS

A brief outline of the method of solving the diffraction problem is given using slender-body theory and matched asymptotic expansions. The computed results are compared with full-scale measurements on an ore carrier and a Great Lakes bulk carrier. The use of an oblique sea Green function in head sea calculations is described in an appendix.
