WAVE ANALYSIS

MAIN FEATURES

  • Selection of an unlimited number of coastal sites for each analysis
  • Investigation of an unlimited number of wind directions for each specific site
  • Description of each wind direction through mean water depth, wind fetch and wind speed duration frequency curves
  • Computation of wave phase speed, angular frequency and period as a function of mean water depth and wave length
  • Computation of wave height as a function of mean water depth, wave length, wind speed, wind duration, wind fetch and wave stability conditions
  • Identification of duration limited waves and fetch limited waves
  • Analysis based on first order approximations
  • Comparison of results with available field data
  • Visualisation of results
  • Suitable for designing and testing

OPTIONS FOR IO OPERATIONS

  • Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet Files (xlsx)

OPTIONS FOR GRAPHICS

  • Standard Image Formats (jpeg, tiff)
  • Portable Document Format (pdf)
