EMPIRICAL PREDICTION OF WAVE SPECTRUM FOR WIND-GENERATED GRAVITY WAVES

Jung-Tai Lin

Abstract


Wind-Generated gravity wave has been of great interest to researchers and engineers in the field of coastal engineering because it is one of the important considerations in the engineering studies and designs for ship navigation, coastal and off-shore structures, shore protection, oil pollution control, and wave energy conversion. An accurate prediction of the wave height, wave frequency, and wave spectrum is critical to the success of these engineering studies and design.

Keywords
