A SYSTEMATIC APPROACH FOR EVALUATION OF PORT DEVELOPMENT AND OPERATIONS PROBLEMS UTILIZING REAL TIME SIMULATION
Recent advances in ship simulation technology and research have produced new tools to complement traditional channel design techniques. The systematic use of simulation in the waterway design process to augment economic studies and engineering analyses can result in a more complete understanding of the economic, environmental and safety issues involved in the operation of large vessels in port and harbor waterways. The role of vessel simulation in support of port design and operations interest groups is discussed in this paper with an emphasis on the role of the human operator in the process. Examples are presented to illustrate each use of simulation and to highlight the interdependent nature of design variables which lend themselves to examination using simulation techniques.
