Problem definition and modeling techniques for the study of Kaneohe Bay, Oahu, Hawaii
McAnally, William H.; Lunz, John D.; Raney, Donald C.; Hudson, Robert Y.; Letter, Joseph V.
Research ReportAbstract: A study was conducted to define the problems of Kaneohe Bay, Oahu, Hawaii, that require further investigation commensurate with the ongoing urban study and to determine appropriate solution techniques for use in the investigations. It was concluded that a prototype data collection program and a numerical hydrodynamic model are minimum requirements for the study of the bay, and that for a detailed, quantitative evaluation of potential alterations, a physical hydraulic model al so is required. Length scales of 1:40 vertically and 1:200 horizontally for a fixed-bed physical model are recommended. A prototype data acquisition program for problem identification and verification of both the numerical model and the physical model is described.
