Abstract:

The Los Angeles - Long Beach Harbors physical model for harbor resonance was used to investigate the effects of the Operations, Facilities, and Infrastructure OFI, Scheme B, 2020 Plan on long wave periods 30-500 sec at existing and proposed berth locations. Phases I and II were studied. Monochromatic and irregular long waves were programmed for the 59.5-rn 195-ft segmented wave generator which produced a variable amplitude wave front. Long period wave heights were measured at 87 gauge locations for existing and plan conditions. Long-period wave spectra represented winter storms from the west and waves from the south more typical of summer and early fall.
