WAVE-INDUCED SHIP MOTIONS IN HARBOUR APPROACH CHANNELS

A.C. Van Wyk, J.A. Zwamborn

Abstract


The results of scale-model simulation of wave-induced hull motions of large bulk carriers under conditions representative of those for coastal ports are presented and discussed to illustrate their usefulness in studies aimed at evaluating the optimum depth requirements for port approach channels.
