Abstract: A real-time ship simulation study of the proposed design for a turning basin in the navigation channel in Mobile, AL, was conducted. The basin is to be constructed opposite the State of Alabama coal dock at the northern edge of Mobile Bay. The purpose of the project is to provide adequate room for 950-ft-long bulk carriers to tum around safely and efficiently. Field data were used for channel currents in the simulation tests. Simulation validation and testing were conducted by professional pilots from the Mobile Bay Bar Pilots Association. Tests were conducted in Vicksburg, MS, on the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station ship simulator. NOTE: This file is large. Please allow your browser several minutes to download the file.
