ON THE MARINE TRAFFIC CAPACITY AVAILABLE FOR THE DESIGN OF A SHIP CHANNEL-PART 1

As the marine traffic capacity is a very important factor to design a ship channel, a method to obtain the capacity is proposed by authors from a viewpoint of ship maneuvering using computer simulation techniques. From this report, it is shown that the capacities of the 700 meters width straight channel are 32 vessels a hour for the standard vessels C (their length are 150 meter) and 70 vessels a hour for the standard vessels B (their length are 100 meter) by a computer IBM 360-195. Furthermore the results of simulations of a cross type channel (700 meter width) are shown.
