Course Objectives 1. To teach students basic concepts of water wave mechanics,
2. To improve the students’ ability to solve and interpret water wave mechanics problems.
3. to provide the students with a basic and applied knowledge of water wave mechanics as required in the design of ocean structures, marine vehicles and harbours; in the protection of shores; and for the prediction of sea states.
Course Description Wave theories in deep and shallow waters, kinematics of wave particles, Non-linear wave theories, transitional domains for the different wave theories Breaking wave mechanics, wave refraction, diffraction and reflection, One-sided and Directional wave spectrums,: Wave Statistics, Diagrams of wave height and wave period distribution, Short and Long term design wave height calculations by spectra formula and distribution diagrams.
