Abstract : The computer program KIMUR5 was developed to predict wave group run lengths based on Kimura's method. This method, which is based on an assumption of mutual correlation between successive waves, has been demonstrated to be superior to Goda's method. Wave grouping is especially significant in shallow-water laboratory models of harbor resonance, beach runup, and slow-drift motions of moored structures. Descriptions, theoretical development, documentation, and a listing of the computer program KIMUR5 and associated subroutines are available upon request.
