A computer simulation model containing harbor features, navigational data, weather information, and ship movement routines was developed. Operation of the model makes it possible to simulate the movement of ships in a realistic manner through harbor and other restricted water areas. Information yielded by the model includes collisions, near misses, groundings, and potential groundings for all vessels. A record of time spent in the harbor and the generation of a harbor utilization index for each vessel is also delivered by the model. Harbor status reports are automatically printed at regular intervals. This report contains the model philosophy, description, Fortan listing, flow chart, and operating instructions for model usage.
