About this book

Random waves are the most important constituent of the sea environment. They make the design of maritime structures quite different from that of structures on land. In this book, the concept of randomness in waves for the design of breakwaters, seawalls, and harbor structures is fully explored for easy comprehension by practicing engineers. Theoretical aspects are also discussed in detail for further studies by graduate students and researchers. Several additions have been made to this second edition, including a new chapter on extreme wave statistics.


Statistical properties and spectra of sea waves; transformation and deformation of random sea waves; design of vertical breakwaters; design of seawalls; harbour tranquility; hydraulic model tests with irregular waves; description of random sea waves; statistical theory of irregular waves; techniques of irregular wave analysis; statistical analysis of extreme waves.
