Abstract:

BMT helps USACE to evaluate challenging wave related issues in navigation and flooding projects to reduce the O and M costs by developing more accurate and cost-effective engineering solutions. BMT is used in optimization of integrated navigation system to improve performance, realignment, safety, reliability and operations of channels improvement of navigation operations by advanced dredging practices and modifications for ports, harbors and marinas with innovative infrastructures design probabilistic engineering design and rehabilitation estimates for jetties, breakwaters for coastal protection evaluation of the impacts of engineering activities affecting safety of coastal navigation e.g., channel deepening, and jetty modifications in port access and utilization and quantifying ship transit effects on erosion of coastal shorelines and river banks.
