We consider the problem of calculating the wave load distribution acting on a large conical vertical ocean structure (monotower) due to an ambient nonuniform flow field. Under the assumption of weak flow nonuniformity, it is demonstrated that the leading-order solution for a vertical structure with variable cross section exhibits nonlocal terms, in contrast with a straight column with a constant cross section.
