Description: Technical note
PURPOSE: The Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) described herein provides information about a new wave parameter for characterizing wave processes at coastal structures. A description of the parameter is given along with sample calculations for periodic waves and solitary waves. The first application of this physically relevant parameter has been development of new empirical relationships for irregular wave runup on smooth, impermeable slopes described in CHETN-III-68 (Hughes 2003).
