STATISTICAL PROPERTIES OF THE MAXIMUM RUN OF IRREGULAR SEA WAVES

Akira Kimura

Abstract


The probability distribution of the maximum run of irregular wave height is introduced theoretically. Probability distributions for the 2nd maximum, 3rd maximum and further maximum runs are also introduced. Their statistical properties, including the means and their confidence regions, are applied to the verification of experiments with irregular waves in the realization of a "severe sea state" in the test.
