  author={Vikalesh Kumar and Kavitha Ashok Kumar and Nithin N. Raju},
EVALUATION of wave characteristics during severe sea states is essential for the adequate design and constru ction of coastal structures. The significant wave height is the generally used wave height parameter and is comp arable to the statistically determined a verage of the highest onethird wave in a record. Significant wave height ( Hs) is the wave height value approximately observed and recorded by a human when making a visual observation. The maximum value of wave height in a record is… CONTINUE READING
