Analytical solutions for the wave-induced second-order time independent drift forces and moments due to the dynamic and the waterline pressures on a fixed vertical circular cylinder are derived. The results are displayed graphically for a number of depth to radius ratios. An analytical technique is used to determine the first-order velocity potential by considering two regions, namely, interior region and exterior region. We have also demonstrated a numerical solution by a higher order panel method in which the kernel of the integral equation is modified to make it non-singular and amenable to solutions by the Gaussian quadrature formula. The numerical results are found to comply with the analytical solutions.
