This paper is concerned with responses of a spherical buoy to weakly viscous capillary-gravity waves. In case of weakly viscous liquid, there exist shear components of wave forces and there are normal forces due to viscosity, surface tension and pressure. All forces are calculated by integrating stresses over infinitesimal surface and in the domain of intersection through numerical computations. All numerical results are shown by many figures with explanations. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
