COMPUTATIONS OF WAVE DRIFT FORCES

This paper presents results from computations of drift forces upon different bodies in regular waves. An original fluid finite-element computer model is used to derive the hydrodynamic characteristics. Three formulations of the second-order steady forces are tested on a sphere, a rectangular box, and a 200,000 dwt tanker.
