A linear method for analyzing the coupled response of a float supported aircraft in a seaway has been derived. It was then applied to two specific aircraft models using the Neumann spectrum to describe the seaway and existing experimental data to estimate the drag and added mass coefficients. Through a systematic variation of the parameters governing the float system it was possible to see their effects on the response characteristics of the aircraft. Author
