The use of microcomputer technology to solve many of the iterative and tedious computations encountered in the engineering field is becoming prominent. Coastal Engineering is one of the many fields in engineering where the presence of the microcomputer is being felt. The need to compete efficiently and economically in the engineering market requires the accessibility to and use of computer software to speed up some of the menial tasks. This thesis presents the development and demonstrated use of three (3) such software packages. The data encryption software, CADGRID, water wave refraction and diffraction software, MUNWAVE, and the water basin response software, LONGWAVE, were developed using the Microsoft, QuickBasic program development software on a 80386 CPU based microcomputer system with 80387 coprocessor. The plotting routines were written using the Hewlett Packard Graphics Language (HPGL). The programs CADGRID and LONGWAVE will work in either EGA, VGA, CGA or Hercules monochrome graphics mode with VGA recommended. The program MUNWAVE will only operate in EGA graphics mode.
