Variations in wave direction estimated using first and second order Fourier coefficients
In most design applications such as alignment of the berthing structure and breakwater alignment, it becomes necessary to determine the direction of design wave. There are two different approaches to determine wave direction. ...
Analysis of wave directional spreading using neural networks
The short-term directional spreading of wave energy at a given location is popularly modeled with the help of the Cosine Power model. This model is oriented mainly around value of the spreading parameter involved in its ...
Design wave estimation considering directional distribution of waves
The design of coastal and offshore structures requires design significant wave height having a certain return period. The commonly followed procedure to estimate the design wave height, does not give any consideration to ...
Estimation of wind speed and wave height during cyclones
Wave and wind characteristics based on the cyclones, in the vicinity of the Nagapattinam coastline (east coast of India) were estimated. In all, 11 cyclones have crossed near the study region during 1960-1996. For the four ...
