A thirdorder analytical solution for the capillary gravity short crested waves with uniform current (the main current direction is along the vertical wall) in front of a vertical wall is derived through a perturbation expanding technique. The validity and advantage of the new solution were proved by comparing the results of wave profiles and wave pressures with those of Huang and Jia [H. Huang, F. Jia, The patterns of surface capillary gravity shortcrested waves with uniform current fields in coastal waters, Acta Mech. Sinica 22 (2006) 433–441] and Hsu [J.R.C. Hsu, Y. Tsuchiya, R. Silvester, Thirdorder approximation to shortcrested waves, J. Fluid Mech 90 (1979) 179–196]. The important influences of currents on the wave profiles, wave frequency, the ratio of maximum crest height to the total wave height, and wave pressure are investigated for both smallscale (for example, the incident wave wavelength is 9.35 cm) and largerscale (for example, the incident wave wavelength is 5 m) short crested wave. By numerical computation, we find wave frequency of short crested wave system is greatly affected by incident wave amplitude, incident angle, water depth, surface tension coefficient and the strength of the currents for smallscale incident wave. Furthermore, for the largerscale short crested wave system, the higherorder solution with uniform current is particularly important for the prediction of wave profile and wave pressure for different water depth and incident angle. Computational results show that with the increase of the current speed, the crests of wave profile and wave pressure become more and more steep. In some cases, the crest value of wave pressure with strong current would be larger about six times than that of no current. Therefore, ocean engineers should consider the short crested wavecurrent load on marine constructs carefully.
