The work is aimed at improving and extending the dynamical method for calculating lateral bending moments on ships in oblique waves developed on this project AD-270 240 previously. The theoretical framework is first restated in a more general form. The equations of motions allow for three degrees of freedom, and all inertia, damping and cross-coupling terms. The bending moment equation is based on the lateral forces used to determine the motions. A computer program, which permits changes in the theory to be made easily, is then prepared to carry out the calculations.
