This unit covers the key elements and essential concepts of ocean wave mechanics that are relevant to design of offshore and coastal structures. The unit extends the concepts in JEE221 Fluid Mechanics and provides the foundations for JEE359 Design of Floating Offshore Structures and JEE402 Design of Coastal Engineering Structures.

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.

* The Final WW Date is the final date from which you can withdraw from the unit without academic penalty, however you will still incur a financial liability (refer to How do I withdraw from a unit? for more information).
Unit census dates currently displaying for 2022 are indicative and subject to change. Finalised census dates for 2022 will be available from the 1st October 2021. Note census date cutoff is 11.59pm AEST (AEDT during October to March).
- Describe the different formulations of regular ocean wave kinematics and wave loads and evaluate their applications in design of offshore and coastal structures
- Analyse the different transformation processes of ocean waves and different wave-energy conversion methods.
- Analyse the application of different wave spectra to describe irregular, linear ocean waves
- Implement some of the calculation methods and develop a solution strategy to problems related to ocean wave kinematics and loads on structures.
