Tests were conducted on a 1100-scale model of an area along the beach at Honolulu, Hawaii, to investigate wave action and related phenomena pertinent to the proposed construction of a large artificial island for recreational and associated activities. The proposed island will be constructed between two existing facilities Kewalo Basin, primarily a commercial fishing-boat harbor, and Ala Wai Boat Harbor, a pleasure craft harbor. These two harbors and sufficient offshore area to permit generation of the required test waves were included in the model. The study included an investigation of 1 currents and possible pollution in the proposed recreational areas and b remedial plans for the reduction of undesirable wave heights in the two existing harbors. Model equipment included wave-generating and wave-measuring apparatus, a water and simulated pollution inflow system, and apparatus for the simulation of a tidal cycle in the model. Author
