The in-line response of a vertical flexibly mounted cylinder in regular and random waves is reported. Both theoretical analyses and experimental measurements have been performed. The theoretical predictions are based on the Morison equation which is solved by the incremental harmonic balance method. Experiments are then performed in a wave flume to determine the accuracy of the Morison equation in predicting the in-line response of the cylinder in regular and random waves. The interaction between waves and vibrating cylinders are investigated.
