COMPUTER MANUAL FOR CALCULATING WAVE-HEIGHT DISTRIBUTIONS ABOUT OFFSHORE STRUCTURES

This report is a user's manual to provide easy access to computer programs for wave-diffraction problems. The programs presented are for the diffraction of water waves by isolated cylindrical structures of arbitrary cross-sectional geometry. The solution of the boundary-value problem is obtained using the method of Greens' function. Programs are presented for the integral-equation solution and an approximate superposition solution. Usage-guidelines and illustrative examples are presented along with numerical accuracy and limitations of the programs.
