Natural gas is relatively clean and its demand is increasing these days. In most of the case, gas fields are located at the bottom of the sea. Therefore, floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) system is now attracting big attention. This paper is related to dynamical design of FPSO system, specially focused on the free surface elevation in the horizontal cylindrical and axisymmetric liquid vessel with end caps induced by the wave. In this study, the theory on the wave height and resonant frequency in a horizontal cylinder subjected to longitudinal external excitation is developed. Then, the theory capable of taking account of the effect of punching plates is described. Finally, experimental data of resonant wave height up to 3rd mode are shown in comparison with theoretically derived results.
