This paper deals with wave force on a horizontal structural member located near still-water level. The waves are treated as unidirectional long-crested deep-water zero-mean Gaussian random waves of arbitrary bandwidth propagating perpendicular to the axis of the member. The forces considered are the slamming, drag, inertial and buoyancy forces. The effect of intermittent submergence of the member in water due to fluctuation of the wave surface is also considered. The statistical properties obtained are the mean value, mean square value and spectrum of wave force.
