Abstract: This is the third in a series of reports providing handheld calculator algorithms for use in coastal engineering. The first and second reports in this ser1es were published as Coastal Engineering Technical Aids (CETA's) and are available from the U. S. 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 performing 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 present report provides algorithms for three calculator programs that forecast gravity water waves in deep and shallow water. Two programs use the Joint North Sea Wave Project(JONSWAP) shallow- and deepwater wave forecasting equations as presented in the Coastal Engineering Research Center's Shore Protection Manual (revised edition to be published in 1984). The third program uses equations to predict a depth-limited significant wave height. The programs are intended for use with the HP-41CV.
