EDUCATION IN WAVE THEORY

David John Skyner from The University of Edinburgh has written a thesis about THE MECHANICS OF EXTREME WATER WAVES

Everyone has seen waves on a lake or oceans. But what are they? from Evergreen Project

The Physics Classroom Lessons about waves

MEASURED TRANSFORMATION OF DEEP WATER WAVE SPECTRA ACROSS A SHALLOW CORAL REEF FLAT by David D. McGehee, P.E.

Department of Civil Engineering Earthquake Engineering: Waves

Wave Reflection at Impedance Discontinuity

Here are some interesting Java Applets for Coastal Engineering:

Hydrodynamics

bullet

Wave Calculator: Using incident deep water wave data, it calculates 
the local wave variables in shallower water. It includes solving the dispersion
relationship and Snell's Law.

bullet

Linear Wave Kinematics: Given wave properties, the orbital motions of 
the water particles are shown graphically.

bullet

Superposition of Waves: Up to four waves can be superimposed to show
 wave groups and standing waves.

bullet

Wavemaker Theory: Depending on the type of wavemaker being used 
(piston or flap), the stroke and power necessary to generate a wave in a given
depth of water is determined.

bullet

Dual Flap Wavemaker: The behavior of a dual flap wavemaker is shown 
and the stroke and mean power to generate given waves is shown.

bullet

Seiche Calculator: Period of standing waves in a rectangular basin.

bullet

Edge Waves on a Planar Beach: The first three edge wave modes on a 
planar beach of given slope.

bullet

Stream Function Wave Theory: A fully nonlinear water wave on a constant depth.
