SHIP NAVIGATION SIMULATION STUDY, HOUSTON-GALVESTON NAVIGATION CHANNELS, TEXAS. REPORT 2. HOUSTON SHIP CHANNEL, BAYOU SEGMENT

The Houston/Galveston Navigation Channels are located along the Gulf of Mexico Coast in eastern Texas. A navigation study was conducted for the channels, including a real-time ship simulation of the project area to determine a cost-effective channel design for safe navigation. The capability of large loaded vessels to meet and pass is the primary factor in determining safe channel width. In the highly restricted channel, both bank and ship interaction effects are significant factors in conducting bow-on meeting and passing maneuvers.
