Project Goals:


The main goal for this coastal engineering project is to leverage a "Wave Calculator" implemented in MATLAB. The wave calculator is a program that takes parameters like and outputs useful information like This project consists of a MATLAB program that takes an array of wave height data over time and outputs plots of pressure distribution as a function of water depth. Although the data obtained through my program scripts was written to account for basic wave functions, it is a good estimation of the forces exerted by a series of waves. This information can be useful for seawall design. Essentially, this MATLAB program will allow the user to enter wave height data obtained for a particular area and then use that data to determine the feasibility of constructing a seawall or bulkhead for that given area.
