Abstract: A real-time ship simulation investigation of the proposed design for deepening and widening the man-made San Juan Harbor channels, San Juan, Puerto Rico, was conducted. The purposes of the study were to determine the required channel width and alignment to deepen the inner harbor channels from 36 to 39 ft and to determine the necessary depths in the entrance channel to allow for the ship's vertical motion due to wave action. A numerical model of the existing channel from the Atlantic Ocean to the inner harbor area was developed. This model was verified by two members of the San Juan Harbor Pilots Association. Numerical models of two plans were also developed. Tests were conducted in Vicksburg, MS, on the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station ship simulator. These tests determined the optimum width and alignment for the San Juan Harbor channels. NOTE: This file is large. Allow your browser several minutes to download the file
