The present publication is dedicated to the random ways - the ways of this type are considered maybe the most critical constituent of the marine environment. The reason for that is that the random waves are making the process of designing the maritime and offshore structures significantly differ from the design of the structures that are located ashore.

The author of the book, Yoshimi Goda, fully explores the theoretical concept of these waves as applicable to the design of the breakwaters and seawalls, as well as of the harbor structures for easier comprehension by the practical industry engineers. All theoretical aspects involved have also been discussed. The publication is deservedly treated as a Bible on this subject since it covers the theory of the design of the maritime structures in more details than many recognized standards do.

The engineers will for sure find this volume very useful because it provides a good overview of all existing methods of description of the waves in question, with the particular attention being paid to the extreme waves. The objective of the author of this volume was twofold - to provide the engineers with the useful tool to deal with random seas, and to serve as a very practical design handbook for graduate students.
