Final technical rept.,
ARMY ENGINEER WATERWAYS EXPERIMENT STATION VICKSBURG MISS
Pagination or Media Count:
A 150-scale undistorted hydraulic model, reproducing approximately 1.4 miles of shoreline along the proposed Waianae Small-Boat Harbor site beginning at Kaneilio Point and extending northwesterly, the surrounding reef, and sufficient offshore area to permit generation of the required test waves, was used to investigate the arrangement and design of proposed harbor configurations with respect to wave action. The basic harbor configuration consisted of a an outer breakwater, b a stub breakwater, c an entrance channel, turning basin, and main access channel, and d revetted fill areas in the harbor interior. Variations to the basic configuration involved changes in the alignments and lengths of the breakwater structure, the cross section of the breakwaters used, the size and shape of the turning basin, the location of fill areas, and the location of the launching ramp inside the harbor. A 60-ft-long wave generator and an automated data acquisition and control system ADACS were used in model operation.
