The wave forces and moments on a floating rectangular box in a two-layer fluid
A comprehensive set of computational formulations is presented for the hydrodynamic forces on a floating rectangular box in a two-layer fluid by matching eigen functions of the interior and exterior problems. Some examples are given and the results indicate that density stratification can have a relative large effect on the hydrodynamic forces on the floating rectangular box over a wide range of frequencies.
