Abstract:

PURPOSE This note discusses a series of microcomputer programs aval table at the Coastal Engineering Research Center that can be used In the practice of coastal engineering. MACE CONTENTS Microcomputer Applications for Coastal Engineering MACE Is a collection of self contained microcomputer programs that perform tasks common to many coastal engineering projects of the Corps of Engineers. MACE programs may be placed In one of the following categories 1. Tide elevation and current estimates A. TIDEHT - Tidal elevation estimates B. TIDEC- Tidal current estimates 2. Statistical analyses for derivation of design criteria A. WAVDIST1 -Extremal significant wave height distribution least squares fit B. WAVDIST2- Extremal significant wave height distribution method of moments c. FWAVOCUR - frequency of wave occurrence 3. Volumetric estimates A. DUNE - Estimation of storm Induced dune erosion 4. Cost-effective optimization A. BWCOMP -Comparison of breakwater volumes and costs B. BWLOSS1 - Estimation of economic losses as a function of wave height c. BWLOSS2 -Estimation of economic losses from transmitted waves D. BWDAMAGE - Estimation of long-term damage to rubblemound breakwaters 5. wave forecasting A. HURWAVES- Hurricane wave parameters. 5. Wave forecasting. A. HURWAVES - Hurricane wave parameters.
