IS PORT STUDY MODEL TESTING REALLY WORTHWHILE?
As all types of vessels now tend to increase in size, many ports, approaches, and other waterways will require geographical change to accommodate this new tonnage. In our current ecologically minded society such changes will not be made easily. The use of hydraulic waterway models coupled with controlled ship models forms a graphic presentation that is understandable by technicians and nontechnicians. This paper describes, very generally, some of the preliminary planning required, and the general format for a successful port study model test. Cost estimates are given so that the possible benefits of such may be measured.
