Abstract:

A study was conducted for Long Beach Harbor to numerically investigate tidal circulation in existing basins and to define and evaluate the impact of possible modification of Pier-J for SOHIO Standard Oil, Ohio on existing harbor circulation. A two-dimensional depth-averaged formulation of the hydrodynamic equations was used in the model and an implicit-explicit finite difference scheme was used to numerically solve the equations. The numerical model was verified using prototype tide and velocity data from physical model tests.
