This paper describes a simplified analytical procedure to predict the hydrodynamic radiation damping coefficients. In the formulation of the wave damping force due to oscillatory rigidbody motion, the use of the wave radiation component is made. At the initial stage of the development a rectangular barge form was used and the formulation is based on the strip theory. The simplified numerical procedure developed was used to predict the hydrodynamic characteristics of a prismatic barge. The hydrodynamic coefficients are developed using the Haskind-Newman relation together with the 2D energy conservation principle in the frequency domain and numerical results from the radiation damping coefficient and force calculations are compared with Vughts' experimental results.
