Abstract
    A theoretical probability dencity function (pdf) of 3-D irregular short crested wave directions is developed in this study, The wave direction is defined as an angle between an axis and a straight line which connects two points on a crest line of a short crested wave, The pdf is introduced as a function of wave amplitudes, It has a form of A exp{ B cos( CΘ)} which appears in some directional function of the 3-D wave spectrum models, A new effective non-dimensional parameter to describe a distance perpendicular to the dominant wave direction appears in the pdf.
