Research aimed at helping designers of offshore structures, with special attention to large monolithic structures being developed for North Sea operation, is being carried out in Ship Division, NPL. An account of a first phase of this work covering the development and validation of a diffraction theory computer program and some systematic commutations for various monolithic shapes has already been published. This paper reports recent work including extensive comparisons between theory and experiment and experience in the use of the program both for research and for commercial application to practical design problems.
