Abstract:

This report provides algorithms for a number of calculator programs useful in performing coastal engineering calculations, primarily in the area of wave transformations and wave generation. Six programs are included for use with HP41CV hand-held calculators which employ the Reverse Polish Notation RPN. These programs can be used to compute linear wave parameters, orbital velocities, breaking wave height and direction, shallow-water wave forecasts, depth-limited breaking wave height, and wave transmission past a vertical barrier.
