Abstract:

A hybrid finite element numerical model was used to calculate harbor response for three alternate geometrical plans and two water depths for the Pier J completion and tanker terminal project of Long Beach Harbor. The numerical model calculates harbor oscillation for harbors of arbitrary shape and variable depth. Three finite element grids which covered areas only in the immediate vicinity of the breakwater-protected tanker terminal area were used to calculate the response of this area to incident waves with periods from 30 sec to approximately 6 min.
