Abstract

The Green's function method has been frequently used for wave force evaluation acting on three dimensional large offshore structures. However, the numerical calculation of the method is not an easy task because of the complex nature of the Green's function. This paper provides an effective calculation method of the Green's function in the integral form which includes some singular points and the infinite integral. The program based on the proposed method has been developed for calculating wave forces acting on three-dimensional floating (or fixed) body, and some numerical examples are presented.
