In this paper the diffraction of a plane first-order solitary wave at a vertical cylindrical wall with calculation of the wave loading on the movable upright rigid cylinder is investigated. The analytical solution is obtained by means of a Fourier transformation technique. The numerical results are obtained by using the software Mathematica version 3.0 to calculate inverse Fourier transforms.
