A series of experiments have been carried out to verify linear wave generator theory as well as to study wave forces on a vertical circular cylinder. The experimental data shows that linear wave generator theory can accurately predict the relationship between water depth, stroke of the wave generator, wave height, and wave period. Experimental forces and overturning moments on the cylinder show reasonably good agreement with linear wave theory and Morison's equation.
