Serial Information: Transactions of the American Society of Civil Engineers, 1960, Vol. 125, Issue 1, Pg. 388-414

Document Type: Journal Paper


Methods for selecting offshore structures in design wave, crest elevation, wave length and maximum horizontal particle velocity at crest; wave data from various sources, supplemented by limited amount of wave theory required for development of generalized graphs are given; information is used to revise some of original graphs of reference.
