Abstract : This report provides algorithms for a number of calculator programs useful in performing coastal engineering calculations, primarily in the area of wave transformation and wave generation. Six programs are included with different versions for use with hand-held calculators which employ either the Reverse Polish Notation (RPN) or the Algebraic Operating System (AOS). These programs can be used to compute linear wave parameters, orbital velocities, breaking wave height and direction, shallow-water wave forecasts, depth-limited breaking wave, and wave transmission past a vertical barrier.
