Abstract: The Houston Ship Channel is one of the busiest deep-draft navigation channels in the United States and must be able to accommodate larger vessels as needed. The U.S. Army Engineer District, Galveston, requested the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center, Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory, perform hydrodynamic, salinity, and sediment transport modeling of proposed modifications along the Houston Ship Channel from its connection to the Gulf of Mexico to the Port of Houston as well as alterations for storm protection. The modeling results are necessary to provide data for salinity and sediment transport analysis as well as a ship simulation investigation to determine the navigational impacts of the proposed alternatives. The model setup and validation are presented in this report. The model proved to match field data for water surface elevation, velocity, and shoaling in the ship channel over three simulation years — 2005, 2010, and 2011.
