The increasing capabilities of the computers enable us to utilize various numerical schemes for the time-domain simulations concerned with 3-dimensional free-surface wave problems. There are still difficulties to solve such kind of problems, however. That's because long time simulations with large computational domain are needed in time-domain analysis. So, we need faster and more efficient numerical schemes to get the solutions practically for these problems. In this paper, a high-order spectral/boundary-element method is used for the numerical investigation of physics involved in wave-body interaction. This method is one of the most efficient numerical methods by which the nonlinear gravity waves can be simulated and hydrodynamic forces also can be calculated in time-domain. To get the robust study in these topics, various numerical tests are performed and compared with others' works.
