Abstract:

This discussion compares prototype and computed spectral results for gages located at Long Beach Harbor, CA. Comparisons are made by examining the differences in the prototype and computed harbor total energy, Et, very long period energy between 200 and 30 seconds, E200-30, and energy spectrums. Spectral analysis allows the energy of the total wave record to be broken down into discrete frequency bands. Spectral results from an incident gage, LB8, located at Queens Gate and Long Beach Site 2, LB2, were used to calculate an energy transfer spectrum for LB2.
