Wave forces on arbitrary-shaped three-dimensional offshore structures are analyzed by the proposed hybrid integral equation method. Eigenfunction expansion is used to represent velocity potential in the outer domain, while a set of integral equations is developed for the inner domain encompassing the structure. A floating dock and a step cylinder are used as test cases showing the validity of the method.
