Abstract: An international symposium on Wave Kinematics, Dynamics and Loads on Structures was held in Houston, Texas, from April 30 to May 1, 1998. The proceedings of this symposium provides a collection of papers presenting recent advances in the understanding, measurement and prediction of wave kinematics, wave dynamics, and wave loads acting on offshore and coastal structures. This international exchange of knowledge and data on new theories, models, statistics, and measurements of ocean waves and wave-structure interaction presents the state of the art. It provides a valuable reference for professionals engaged in the fields of ocean science and engineering.
