The influence of current in sea-keeping problems is felt not only for first order quantities such as wave run-ups in front of the structure, but also mainly for second order quantities. In particular, the wave drift damping (which is expressed as the derivative of drift force with respect to the current) is of special interest for mooring systems. The interaction effects of a double-body steady flow on wave diffraction-radiation is studied through a decomposition of the time-harmonic potential into linear and interaction components. A boundary integral method is used to solve the first order problem. Ultimately, a far-field method is proposed to get access to second order drift forces.
