An analytical soluion of wave forces on large square cylinder

  • Huang He-ning


Wave forces on large square cylinder are determined by using the conformal transformation method. It is found that only for square cylinder, the governing equation is still the Helmholtz equation after the conformal transformation. An analytical solution of wave forces on square cylinder is presented by using the solution of wave forces on a circular cylinder.
