In a recent paper, Raman et al (RJV)  2 presented a second- order solution for the wave interaction with a large-diameter, bottom-mounted, surface-piercing, fixed vertical cylinder. Earlier, Chakrabarti [2,3] obtained an approximate solution for the vertical cylinder due to Stokes's fifth-order wave. Later, Yamaguchi and Tsuchiya (YT)  proposed a second-order solution in a closed form for the wave interaction problem with the vertical cylinder which was examined by Chakrabarti . All these solutions are different due to the assumptions regarding the frequency of the scattered wave and the kinematic free-surface boundary condition. RJV  claim that their solution is superior to the earlier solutions because, according to them, it satisfies the nonlinear free-surface boundary conditions completely.
