The principal objective is to develop and demonstrate a methodology and model that will serve as a management tool in the evaluation of alternative risk reduction techniques, as well as for guidance in the directing of relevant research efforts. This report of Phase I accomplishments presents an outline of the design of both the methodology and the detailed computer simulation model, which will include risk-estimating algorithms for the elemental maneuvering situations in restricted waterways. An important ingredient of this model is "decision-making under uncertainty."
