In the present study, non-linear wave loads such as the wave-drift force, wave-drift damping and wave-drift added mass, acting on the body is considered based on the potential theory. To investigate non-linear wave loads, consistent perturbation expansion by means of two small parameters, i.e. the incident wave slope and the low frequency body motion, is performed on a moving frame (body-fixed) coordinate system. To avoid complicated free surface integrals as much as possible, new approach for the higher order potential in the interaction problem of low frequency motion and waves is suggested in the present work. Instead of integrals, derivative operators are defined to obtain special solutions efficiently.
