Lighthouses situated on exposed rocky outcrops warn mariners of the dangers that lurk beneath the waves. They were first constructed when approaches to wave loading and structural response were relatively unsophisticated, essentially learning from previous failures. Here, we chart the evolution of lighthouses on the Wolf Rock, situated...

The short?term statistics of 10 million individual waves observed with buoys in deep water have been investigated, corrected for a sample?rate bias, and normalized with the standard deviation of the surface elevation (the range of normalized wave heights is 0 < H < 10). The observed normalized trough depths are found to be Rayleigh distributed...

In order to assess their relative merits in the context of the determinalion of Hydraulic Boundary Conditions (HBC), the Annual Maxima / Generalized Extreme Value distribution (AM/GEV) and Peaks over Threshold / Generalized Pareto Oislribution (POT/GPO) approaches are compared in terms of Iheir accuracy, as measured by mean square errors, in...

This thesis has focussed on the validation of extreme wave and crest height distribution. The empirical distribution was simulated based on laboratory and field measurement water elevation data. Both sets of data indicated the presence of abnormal wave ensuring the extreme condition aimed at in this study. The literature review was performed to...

We present a stochastic model for the evolution of random ocean surface waves in coastal waters with complex seafloor topography. First, we derive a deterministic coupled-mode model based on a forward scattering approximation of the nonlinear mild slope equation; this model describes the evolution of random, directionally spread waves over fully...

A nonparametric bivariate density estimation technique is developed employing tensor product B-splines to provide a concise wave data summary. Most of the existing nonparametric techniques involve a certain level of subjectivity in the choice of smoothing parameters. A criterion based on the least squares concept is proposed to remove the...

Coastal engineering problems concerning wind waves and swell can be solved with the aid of hydraulic or mathematical models. The irregular wave field i.e. the state of the sea surface can be described in a sufficient way for engineering problems either by parameters such as significant wave height and mean wave period, or in the form of power...

There is some evidence that the heights and the periods squared of wind waves each are Rayleigh- distributed. If this is the case, it may be surmised that their joint distribution is also of the Rayleigh type. The bivariate Rayleigh distribution, which is known in the field of statistical communications theory, may thus be applicable to wind...
