This paper addresses a three-dimensional theoretical-numerical method for the solution of general surface wave-structure interaction problems. The presented method is based on a second-order potential theory and on a numerical solution of the formulated set of integral-equations for the velocity potentials by a developed computer algorithm. For the validation of the developed theory and the related computer program, typical numerical results for the first and second-order motions and loads of standardized offshore structures in waves are compared with known theoretical results of other authors and with data from model experiments.
