Abstract: A real-time ship simulation study of the proposed design for deepening and widening the man-made Pascagoula channels, Pascagoula, MS, was conducted. The purpose of the study was to determine the required channel width and alignment to deepen the channel from 40 ft to 44 ft in the entrance channel and from 38 ft to 42 ft in the inside channels. Numerical current models for the existing and proposed channels were developed. and the currents were verified in the simulator by members of the Pascagoula Bar Pilots Association. 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 Pascagoula channels.
