Wave Mechanics and Wave Loads on Marine Structures provides a new perspective on the calculation of wave forces on ocean structures, unifying the deterministic and probabilistic approaches to wave theory and combining the methods used in field and experimental measurement. Presenting his quasi-determinism (QD) theory and approach of using small-scale field experiments (SSFEs), author Paolo Boccotti simplifies the findings and techniques honed in his ground-breaking work to provide engineers and researchers with practical new methods of analysis.
Including numerous worked examples and case studies, Wave Mechanics and Wave Loads on Marine Structures also discusses and provides useful FORTRAN programs, including a subroutine for calculating particle velocity and acceleration in wave groups, and programs for calculating wave loads on several kinds of structures.

Paolo Boccotti is a Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at the Mediterranean University of Reggio Calabria in Italy, where he has been since 1986. Highlights of his career include him founding the university's School of Marine Engineering and the NOEL laboratory for small-scale field experiments from scratch.
Boccotti has authored over 30 papers for prestigious journals such as Ocean Engineering, the Journal of Waterway, Port, Coastal and Ocean Engineering, the Journal of Fluid Mechanics and the Journal of Geophysical Research, and in 2000 he published the first edition of 'Wave Mechanics for Ocean Engineering' with Elsevier
