A theory of wave induced main hull vibrations in regular and irregular waves is developed. The vibrating hull is represented by a beam-element-model. The wave exciting forces are determined with a strip theory for oblique waves. Numerical results for a 500,000 ton tanker are obtained and discussed. The given solution proves to be an efficient procedure for the analysis of springing phenomena.
