RESEARCH Of) THE MODEL SHELTERING INVESTIGATION OF A HARBOR

Ho-Shuong Hou

Abstract


The Model Sheltering Experiment deals with the planning arrangement of the proposed harbor and is done by the worst wave condition (with respect to wave direction, wave height, and wave period) which probably occurred on the proposed harbor. The objectives of this experiment are to get the wave pattern of the harbor basin and to understand the various phenomena of the wave refraction, diffraction, and reflection caused by model test due to different harbor arrangement, and to comprehend the sheltering effect of the outer breakwaters. From the analysis of these test results, harbor planning of the most effective arrangement - the most economic length of breakwaters and the most ideal width of harbor entrance could be selected. For the purpose of analyzing results of model tests; comparison of theoretical wave diffraction calculation is proposed.
