Virtually all engineering work along the coast and offshore must consider wave forces, and this consideration requires the knowledge of wave heights, wave periods and wave directions. A computer program was developed which considers all these effects and predicts the changes in the direction and height of water waves. A hypothetical case of a harbor protected by a breakwater was selected as an example for computer calculation. The computer solution was verified experimentally in a three-dimensional wave basin. The agreement between the computer solution and experimental results are considered good.
