The effect of a hole on uplifting forces acting on a submerged horizontal thin plate are examined using the boundary element method. To deal with the submerged thin plate case, which is a degenerate boundary problem, a hypersingular integral equation is employed to overcome some troubles when the boundary element method is used. Two-dimensional problems are considered, and the linear gravity wave theory is adopted. Several examples are calculated and the numerical results are presented to show the influence of a hole on uplifting forces.
