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 height, and wave transmission past a vertical barrier. …                               CONTENTS … II PROGRAMS . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .   7   1. 100R Linear Wave Theory Wavelength (RPN logic) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .   9       100A Linear Wave Theory Wavelength (RPN logic) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 12   2. 100R Calculation of Wave Parameters from Linear Theory (RPN logic) . . . . 16      100A Calculation of Wave Parameters from Linear Theory (AOS logic) . . . . 21   3. 102R Linear Wave Approximation to Breaking Wave Height         and Breaking Wave Angle (RPN logic) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 29       102A Linear Wave Approximation to Breaking Wave Height         and Breaking Wave Angle (AOS logic)  . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 34   4. 103R Shallow-Water Wave Forecasting Equations        (RPN logic)  . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 41      103A Shallow-Water Wave Forecasting Equations        (AOS logic) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 45   5. 104R Depth-Limited Design Breaking Wave Height at        Structure (RPN logic)  . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 50       104A Depth-Limited Design Breaking Wave Height at         Structure (AOS logic) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 54   6. 105R Wave Transmission - Fuchs' Equation (RPN logic) . . . . . . . . . . . . . 58       105A Wave Transmission - Fuchs' Equation (AOS logic)  . . . . . . . . . . . . 61 … I. INTRODUCTION …    Since subtle differences exist among various brands of calculators and among various models by the same manufacturer, the programs presented may need to be modified to adapt them to other brands or models. These programs were prepared and checked, using the Texas Instruments TI-59 (AOS) and the Hewlett- Packard HP67 (RPN) … … " BEST! SlideRule
