STWAVE - STeady State spectral WAVE
This module is interfaced via the Coastal Engineering Design and Analysis System (CEDAS) interface.

STWAVE (STeady State spectral WAVE) is an easy-to-apply, flexible, robust, half-plane model for nearshore wind-wave growth and propagation. STWAVE simulates depth-induced wave refraction and shoaling, current-induced refraction and shoaling, depth- and steepness-induced wave breaking, diffraction, parametric wave growth because of wind input, and wave-wave interaction and white capping that redistribute and dissipate energy in a growing wave field.

STWAVE is being extended from a half-plane model to a full-plane model (including propagation and generation from all directions). This work is currently under development.
