The horizontal wave drift force acting on a vertical floating column, without then with a heave plate, is considered. Computations are performed with a diffraction-radiation code and through the Morison and Rainey equations. Focus is on wave frequencies around the heave resonance where the drift force may be significant, even though the scattered wave-field being weak. It is found that the Morison equation overpredicts the drift force while Rainey equations perform rather well.
