The primary objective of this study is to establish the non-normal relationship between Morison-type random wave loading and structural response via repeated Monte Carlo simulations. A standardized equation of motion will be developed, such that the numerical results can apply to various structures and sea states, instead of a particular structure or sea state. The reliability of the Monte Carlo simulation technique will also be investigated, analytically and experimentally.
