Description: Technical note
Introduction: One of the many U.S. Army Corps of Engineer (USACE) missions is to construct and maintain shallow draft coastal ports and harbors, which are defined as those with authorized depths less than 20 ft. USACE shallow draft projects number over 600 and can be found in all coastal regions including the Pacific west coast, the Atlantic east coast, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Great Lakes. The USACE maintains entrance channels, inner harbor channels, and protective structures associated with many shallow draft ports. Current shallow draft harbor design practices incorporate research conducted for deep draft vessels and rules-of-thumb developed over the past 50 years. The USACE has initiated research designed to update and improve the existing design criteria for shallow draft harbors. The research work unit, "Shallow Draft Coastal Port Design," in the Navigation Hydraulics Program is being conducted at the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station.
