Abstract:

This is the fourth in a series of reports providing handheld calculator algorithms for use in coastal engineering. The first and second reports in this series were published as Coastal Engineering Technical Aids CETAs. CETA 82-1 presents a set of six algorithms for programs useful in performing certain wave transformation and wave generation calculations with both the Texas Instruments TI-59 Algebraic Operating System AOS notation and the Hewlett-Packard HP-67 Reverse Polish Notation RPN CETA 82--4 presents the same six algorithms for use on the HP-41 CV RPN. The third report, Miscellaneous Paper CERC-83-9, Report 3, provides calculator algorithms for use with the HP-41CV. The first program computes the breaking wave forces on and moments about the base of vertical face structures using the Minikin method. The second program computes the non-breaking wave force and overturning moment at the base of vertical face structures using both the Miche-rundgren and Sainflou equations. The last program computes the pressure distribution corresponding to the Miche-Rundgren andor Sailnflou solutions. The reference to these programs is the Shore Protection Manual US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station, Coastal Engineering Research Center, 1984.
