In dynamic analysis of floating structures, the designer needs to know the wave forces due to incident and scattered waves on the structure. In this work, the flow field around the body is solved based on the potential theory with considering the free surface and sea bed effects. Using this theory, the wave forces exerted on two typical sea buoys with spherical and disc-type bodies are determined. Comparison of these results with the one obtained using Haskind method shows good accuracy of the present method.
