Ocean Engineering Mechanics is designed to give an introduction to water waves and wave-structure interactions for fixed and floating bodies.

The introductory topics in wave mechanics and the presentation of such have their foundations in the courses taught at the US Naval Academy. The advanced topics have their origins in the postgraduate courses taught at The Johns Hopkins University.


1. Introduction; 2. Review of hydromechanics; 3. Linear surface waves; 4. Nonlinear surface waves; 5. Random seas; 6. Wave modification and transformation; 7. Waves in the coastal zone; 8. Coastal engineering considerations; 9. Wave-induced forces and moments on fixed bodies; 10. Introduction to wave-structure interaction; 11. Floating bodies; 12. Wave-induced motions of compliant structures.
