(41CV) Coastal Engineering Technical Aid No. 83-9 (4)
An extract from Coastal Engineering Technical Aid No. 83-9, Hand-Held Calculator Algorithms for Coastal Engineering; Report 4, USA-CoE, Coastal Engineering Research Center, CETA 83-9, April 1985, 45 pages

" ABSTRACT
       This is the fourth in a series of reports providing handheld calculator
algorithms for use in coastal engineering.  The first and second reports in
this series were published as Coastal Engineering Technical Aids (CETA's) and
are available from the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station Tech-
nical Report Distribution Center, Vicksburg, Miss.  Of these, CETA 82-1 pre-
sents a set of six algorithms for programs useful in performing certain wave
transformation and wave generation calculations with both the Texas Instruments
TI-59 (Algebraic Operating System (AOS) notation) and the Hewlett-Packard
HP-67 (Reverse Polish Notation (RPN)); CETA 82-4 presents the same six
algorithms for use on the HP-41CV (RPN).  The third report, Miscellaneous
Paper CERC-83-9, Report 3, provides calculator algorithms for use with the
HP-41CV that forecast gravity water waves in deep and shallow water.
       The present report provides algorithms for three calculator programs
intended for use with the HP-41CV.  The first program computes the breaking
wave forces on and moments about the base of vertical face structures using
the Minikin method.  The second program computes the non-breaking wave force
and overturning moment at the base of vertical face structures using both the
Miche-Rundgren and Sainflou equations.  The last program computes the pressure
distribution corresponding to the Miche-Rundgren and/or Sainflou solutions.  
The reference to these programs is the Shore Protection Manual (US Army Engineer
Waterways Experiment Station, Coastal Engineering Research Center, 1984).
