The necessary cross-section dimensions were determined by the space required for the different traffic situations which must be possible without danger. The traffic situation requiring the greatest amount of space - taken as the key traffic situation - involves three large vessels: one is overtaking another, while a third is sailing in the opposite direction. The boundary conditions for the model study were also determined on the basis of prototype measurements; these conditions included dimensions, draughts, capacities, navigation speeds of the ships, traffic situtations encountered and the corresponding maneuvres; evasive action, adjucting navigation speeds, distances from other vessels and from the banks.
