Description: Technical report
Savannah District requested a navigation simulation study of Brunswick Harbor to determine both channel and bend widening requirements throughout the channel based on, primarily, real-time simulator experiments with the design ships and the best design and placement of the East River turning basin. Navigation conditions (existing and proposed) were conducted using real-time piloted ship simulation experiments. A field data collection verified and adjusted a numerical hydrodynamic model of the tidal currents and the tidal sound and river system; and a hydrodynamic model of the existing and plan conditions was developed and adjusted based on field data. Also, two hydrodynamic models of design ships (a car-carrier for analyzing the South Brunswick Channel leading to the existing Colonels Island car facility, and a bulk carrier for analyzing the East River channel and turning basin) for experimenting due to the different navigation concerns associated with each ship type were developed. Channel deepening in Turtle River above the Brunswick and South Brunswick Rivers junction was not included in the study.
