Abstract: A 1:120- scale (undistorted) hydraulic model of the proposed Jubail Harbor site and sufficient offshore area to permit generation of the required test waves was used to investigate the arrangement and design of the proposed offshore structures with respect to wave heights at critical locations within the harbor complex. The basic harbor consisted of an offshore island connected to shore by a causeway, north and east breakwaters to provide protection for the island, and an ammunition pier connected to shore by a causeway. Variations to the basic configuration included : (a) realigning the breakwaters, (b) varying the crown elevation of the breakwaters, (c) lengthening and shortening the breakwaters, (d) adding various inner breakwaters and revetted slopes , (e) relocating the island , (f) relocating the ammunition pier, (g) additional dredging, and (h) relocating the entire harbor complex to a more shoreward location. A 24.4-m-long wave generator and electrical wave-height measuring and recording apparatus were utilized in model operation. NOTE: This file is large.
