Abstract
The coastal and offshore structures are some times exposed to group of waves with successive higher wave elevations exceeding the significant wave height, which is considered to be vulnerable for the stability of the structures. Hence, the knowledge on the existence and frequency of occurrence of ocean wave groups at a particular region of interest is important for the design of the ocean structures. In the present study, the wave groups were simulated theoretically and the same was generated in the laboratory wave flume. The measured wave elevations were analysed through statistical, spectral and wavelet approaches to detect the existence of the groupiness. Copyright © 2006 by ASME.
