NAUTICAL DESIGN STUDIES HAIFA PORT EXTENSIONS

J.A. Zwamborn, F. Di Castro, M. Radomir, J.T.M. van Doorn

Abstract


Detailed studies have been undertaken to assist in the design of major extensions to the port of Haifa. Both numerical and physical model studies were done to optimise the mooring conditions vis a vis the harbour approach and entrance layout. The adopted layout deviates from the normal straight approach to the harbour entrance. This layout, together with suitable aids to navigation, was found to be nautically acceptable, and generally better with regard to mooring conditions, on the basis of extensive nautical design studies.
