Determining the impact of external excitations on a dynamic marine object such as ship hull in a seaway is the main goal of simulations. Now such simulations is most often based on approximate mathematical models that use results of the theory of small amplitude waves. The most complicated software for marine objects behavior simulation LAMP IV (Large amplitude motion program) uses numerical solution of traditional hydrodynamic problem without often used approximations but on the basis of theory of small amplitude waves. For efficiency reasons these simulations can be based on autoregressive model to generate real wave surface. Such a surface possesses all the hydrodynamic characteristics of sea waves, preserves dispersion relation and also shows superior performance compared to other wind wave models. Naturally, the known surface can be used to compute velocity field and in turn to determine pressures in any point under sea surface. The resulting computational algorithm can be used to determine pressures without use of theory of small-amplitude waves.
