SECOND-ORDER, SLOWLY-VARYING FORCES ON VESSELS IN IRREGULAR WAVES

An analysis is made of the slowly varying second-order wave force which results from the nonlinear interactions between adjacent portions of the wave spectrum. This force is of practical importance in a variety of problems including added resistance and course variations of ships, horizontal oscillations of moored vessels, and vertical oscillations of vessels with small waterplane areas.
