As the main source of resonant excitations to most offshore moored systems like floating LNG terminals, the low-frequency wave loading is the critical input to motion simulations which are important for the design. Further to the analysis presented by Chen & Duan (2007) and Chen & Rezende (2008) on the quadratic transfer function (QTF) of low-frequency wave loading, the new formulation of QTF is developed by the series expansion of the second-order wave loading with respect to the difference-frequency upto the order-2. It provides a novel method to evaluate the low-frequency second-order wave loads in a more accurate than usual order-0 approximation (often called Newman approximation) and more efficient way comparing to the computation of complete QTF. New developments including numerical results of different components of QTF are presented here. Furthermore, the time-series reconstruction of excitation loads in the motion simulation of mooring systems is analyzed and a new efficient and accurate scheme is demonstrated.
