Abstract: This is the fourth in a series of reports providing handheld calculator algorithms for use in coastal engineering. The first and second reports in this series were published as Coastal Engineering Technical Aids (CETA’s) and are available from the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station Technical Report Distribution Center, Vicksburg, Miss. Of these, CETA 82- 1 presents a set of six algorithms for programs useful in per forming certain wave transformation and wave generation calculations with both the Texas Instruments TI-59 (Algebraic Operating System (AOS) notation) and the Hewlett-Packard HP-67 (Reverse Polish Notation (RPN)); CETA 82-4 presents the same six algorithms for use on the HP-41CV (RPN). The third report, Miscellaneous Paper CERC-83- 9, Report 3, provides calculator algorithms for use with the HP-41CV that forecast gravity water waves in deep and shallow water. The present report provides algorithms for three calculator programs intended for use with the HP-41CV. The first program computes the breaking wave forces on and moments about the base of vertical face structures using the Minikin method. The second program computes the non-breaking wave force and overturning moment at the base of vertical face structures using both the Miche-Rundgren and Sainflou equations. The last program computes the pressure distribution corresponding to the Miche-Rundgren and/or Sainflou solutions. The reference to these programs is the Shore Protection Manual (US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station, Coastal Engineering Research Center, 1984).
