A hybrid technique, based on the coupled-mode theory developed by Athanassoulis & Belibassakis (1999) and extended to 3D by Belibassakis et al (2001) and Belibassakis & Athanassoulis (2004), which is free of any mild-slope assumption, is used, in conjunction with a boundary integral representation of the near field in the vicinity of the body, to treat the problem of hydrodynamic analysis of floating bodies in the presence of variable bathymetry. Numerical results are presented concerning floating bodies of simple geometry lying over sloping seabeds. With the aid of systematic comparisons, the effects of bottom slope on the hydrodynamic characteristics (hydrodynamic coefficients and responses) are illustrated and discussed.
