To define and predict all forces exerted by sea storms on structures is necessary to give support to coastal and offshore engineering.

In this paper the horizontal force on offshore gravity platforms and on breakwaters is analyzed. Two cases study in two different locations are proposed, the first one concerns Italian coasts (Ortona), the second one is in the USA (Alaska). The results will be compared.

The purpose of this paper is to compare recent methods for calculating force on structures with the well-known Morison’s equation and the Goda’s model.

Wave climate was studied using the ISPRA (Istituto Superiore per la Protezione e la Ricerca Ambientale) and NDBC (National Data Buoy Center) measurements.
