THE INTERACTION BETWEEN A VERTICAL CYLINDER AND REGULAR WAVES

The huge amount of offshore activities in recent years has increased the need of reliable data concerning the wave loading on vertical cylinders. A review is given of different methods, according to which the wave forces on a vertical circular cylinder can be calculated. Numerical results of these methods are compared with the results of model experiments. The wave diffraction around a cylindrical object was calculated with the potential theory and is compared with measurements of the wave amplitude.
