Here, an easy analytical solution for the direct calculation of the instant in which the maximum wave force on a support of an offshoreplatform is realized, and for the direct estimation of the aforementioned maximum force. The solution is obtained thanks to an artifice.The instant is expressed tm of the maximum force as limits of a succession tm0, tm1 , tm2, ... ; and it is proved that in cases of practical interests the successions converge very quickly: tm equal to tm1 , less than negligible errors.The solution allows the estimate of useful synthesis to be arrived at in the preliminary phase of the project. In fact, it allows one to immediately appreciate the effects of variations of the parameters in play: the sections of the cylinder, the depth of the sea floor and thecharacteristics of the waves.
