In the calculation of wave loads on a ship, one must consider the effects of both the incident waves and the diffraction waves (the latter being caused by the presence of the ship in the incident waves). In the ship-motions problem, Khaskind showed how one can do this without having to solve the diffraction-wave boundary-value problem. Khaskind's procedure is here extended to the calculation of structural loads on a ship. Two examples are discussed: (i) bending moment in the vertical plane of a ship in waves, and (ii) torsion in the cross member of a catamaran. Many other applications are possible. In each case, it is necessary to solve a boundary-value problem, but it is generally much simpler than the diffraction problem.
