The far-field asymptotic solutions for the second-order diffracted waves have been developed, both in three and two-dimensional problems. The radiation conditions for the second-order diffracted waves are derived by using the asymptotic solutions. The nonlinear wave forces on a half-circular cylinder on seabed are presented by using finite element methods with the radiation conditions imposed on the artificial boundaries.
