The purpose of this paper is to combine and extend existing potential flow theory in order to analyze the linear free surface problem of an Oscillating Water Column (OWC) device and apply it to moonpool design. Analytical results were obtained implementing the previously derived theories, and later compared to experimental results conducted at the University of New Orleans Towing Tank. The model tests consisted of a study of a cylindrical OWC. The theoretical and experimental results of the free surface for the OWC tests agree for the resonant frequency estimation response but they disagree on the amplitude of the response.
