Abstract: A systematic set of experimental results for the wave force acting on a large horizontal bottom-mounted circular cylinder is presented and compared with a simple theory based on an unseparated flow model. The horizontal force is represented as an inertial component while the uplift force is represented by a lift force arising from the flow velocity plus a Froude-Krilov component. The test results show agreement with the theory.
