The problem of a circular cylinder array slowly oscillating in both diffraction and radiation wave fields is considered in the present work. As a result of the interaction between the wave fields and the low-frequency motion, nonlinear wave loads may be separated into the so-called wave-drift added mass and damping. They are force components proportional to the square of the wave amplitude but in phase of the acceleration and velocity of the low-frequency motion respectively. The frequency of the slow oscillation is assumed to be much smaller than the wave frequency. Perturbation expansion based on two time scales and two small parameters is performed to the order to include the effects of the acceleration of the low-frequency motion. Solutions to these higher order potentials are suggested in the present work. Wave loads including the wave drift added mass and damping are evaluated by the integration of the hydrodynamic pressure over the instantaneous wetted body surface.
