The principal topic of this report concerns the design and use of a passive linear electrical network suitable for the analog simulation of two-dimensional propagation of non-dispersive water waves offshore and within Chesapeake Bay. The method used is essentially that reported by Ishiguro. The band of wave frequencies of interest for this model lies above that of the tides however, an approximate model calibration using the tidal frequencies is included. This report contains examples of some of the possible uses and types of output. Several of the major observed frequency response characteristics of Chesapeake Bay have been simulated with adequate fidelity, considering the purposes for which this model was built, and that useful new information of a predictive nature has been obtained. Sections II through IV contain mainly background material dealing with the theory of long waves and seiches. Author
