Abstract: The deterministic wave- and current-induced hydrodynamic loadings on sea-based structures are reviewed. This state-of-the-art review does not include geotechnical, surface, or installational/operational forces. Wave-induced loadings in both the small member (Morison equation) and large member (diffraction) regimes of wave force computations are reviewed. The selection of appropriate water wave theories and hydrodynamic force coefficients is included. The effects of laboratory facilities on the evaluation of the hydrodynamic force coefficients for periodic flows are also considered.

Subject Headings: Water waves | Wave forces | Hydrodynamics | Load factors | Wave equations | Wave diffraction | Geotechnical engineering | Surface waves
