Paper Number: ISOPE-I-13-439
... the Jiangsu coasts are significantly affected by the local topography. In the northern part, the contours of design wave heights tend to be parallel to the coastal line due to the fact that the depth contours are fairly straight in that area; in contrast, in the southern part, the contours of design wave...

... is very rare and impacts can be much localized or extended in a wide area. And also the extreme impact pressure may occur at an intermediate wave height below the design extreme wave height. The traditional short-term approach investigates only extreme design wave heights. This method is based...

... blocks by making openings to reduce uplift pressure has been described before, little information is available on the influence of the size and placement pattern of such openings. With respect to foot-protection blocks, their stability is ensured by the thickness depending on the design wave height...

... SLOPE 2598 The results obtained during the scale model tests showed that, for the design wave height (8.0 m), the rear side armour layer (30 ton Tetrapod blocks) is stable for both variations. Significant damage occurred, but only for significant wave heights higher than the design wave height. For all...

... and the construction of ocean engineering. For example, the steel quantity in use for building some platform in the Bohai Bay, China will decrease by 50% as the design wave height reduces from 10m to 8m (Sun, 1989). The design force for many offshore platform types is dominated by waves and a 50 or 100 year return...

Paper presented at the The Twelfth International Offshore and Polar Engineering Conference, May 26–31, 2002
Paper Number: ISOPE-I-02-273
... ABSTRACT Calculation of design wave height corresponding to a return period plays an important role in coastal and ocean engineering for planning and designing of marine structures. This paper proposes a Nonlinear Least Square Method (NLSM), which estimates three unknown parameters of Weibull...

... of design waves determination. INTRODUCTION For coastal development projects, the choice of design conditions is an important step, which heavily influences the final cost of constructions and their ability to withstand storms. The choice of design wave heights is directed by extreme waves prediction...
