ACES - Automated Coastal Engineering System
The ACES package is interfaced via the Coastal Engineering Design and Analysis System (CEDAS) interface.

The ACES is a microcomputer-based design and analysis system in the field of coastal engineering. The contents range from simple algebraic expressions both theoretical and empirical in origin, to numerically intense algorithms spawned by the increasing power and affordability of computers. The methods in the ACES range from classical theory describing wave motion, to expressions resulting from tests with structures in wave flumes, and to recent numerical models describing the exchange of energy from the atmosphere to the sea surface.
