The present book describes the most important aspects of wave analysis techniques applied to physical model tests. Moreover, the book serves as technical documentation for the wave analysis software WaveLab 3, cf. Aalborg University (2012). In that respect it should be mentioned that supplementary to the present technical documentation exists also the online help document describing the WaveLab software in detail including all the inputs and output fields. In addition to the two main authors also Tue Hald, Jacob Helm-Petersen and Morten Møller Jakobsen have contributed to the note. Their input is highly acknowledged. The outline of the book is as follows:

• Chapter 2 and 3 describes analysis of waves in time and frequency domain.
• Chapter 4 and 5 describes the separation of incident and reflected waves for the two-dimensional case.
• Chapter 6 describes the estimation of the directional spectra which

also includes the separation of incident and reflected waves for multidirectional waves.

• Chapter 7 describes the analysis of wave groups and calculation of the groupiness factor.
