Abstract:

A hydraulic model investigation of the wave-action problems in Mission Bay Harbor was conducted to develop and test several plans of improvement proposed for reducing wave heights within Quivera Basin and Glen Rick Cove to a satisfactory level. The 1100-scale model, molded in cement mortar, reproduced the portion of the harbor requiring remedial action, and sufficient coastline and offshore bathymetry to permit accurate simulation of storm-wave attack in the area. A 60-ft-long wave machine and electrical wave height measuring and recording apparatus were utilized in model operation.
