Los Angeles and Long Beach Harbors Model Enhancement Program : measured response of moored ships to long-period waves by David D Mcgehee( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach (LA/LB), California, are conducting planning studies for major expansion. This plan calls for reclamation of nearly 10 sq km of new landfill, construction of 38 new terminals, and the dredging or deepening of over 11 km of deep-draft channels. The development will affect the tidal circulation pattern in the harbor and the harbor resonance characteristics. Adequate circulation is necessary to ensure harbor flushing and acceptable water quality. The objective of the ship motion data collection effort was to obtain calibration and verification data sets for a numerical model of moored ship response to wind and waves. To validate the model, synchronous time series data were needed on the incident wave conditions outside the harbor, the mean water level, the harbor oscillation/response and wind conditions near the moored ship, the complete six degree-of-freedom ship response, and mooring line and dock/fender reactions. In addition, ship characteristics, mooring line geometry characteristics, and loading history were required
Los Angeles and Long Beach harbors model enhancement program : prototype wave data summary : final report by James Rosati( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents data products from the analysis of seven different wave gauges in Los Angeles and Long Beach Harbors and a directional wave gauge at a nearby offshore site (Platform Edith). These data products were chosen in an effort to summarize all wave data collected during the Harbors Model Enhancements (HME) Program. Data acquisition methods and equipment are documented in this report, along with analysis methods. The emphasis of this report is on summarizing and documenting the available prototype wave data in fulfillment of the wave data collection and analysis tasks of the HME. Between February 1984 and February 1988 wave data were sampled every 2 hr at 1 Hz for 2,048 sec in the harbors. From February 1988 to August 1991, data were collected continuously in the harbors at an average sample rate of 0.25 Hz. Directional wave data were measured offshore at Platform Edith via a PUV gauge between February 1985 and August 1991. Data for this period were collected at 1 Hz for 2,048 sec every hour but reported every 4 hrs. Waves were measured in seven locations in the harbors with highly accurate single-point pressure sensors. Directional wave measurements show that during the winter months most of the waves come from the west, but during the summer, the majority of the waves come from the south (although a significant number still come from the west) and average peak in wind wave energy during the months of September and October. However, low-frequency waves that affect ship motion are present throughout the year
Los Angeles and Long Beach Harbors Model Enhancement Program, effects of wind on circulation in Los Angeles-Long Beach Harbors by William C Seabergh( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A previously calibrated numerical three-dimensional hydrodynamic model for Los Angeles-Long Beach Harbors, California, was applied to study the combined effects of tide and wind on circulation. The model was calibrated and verified successfully with field data for a summer wind condition. In this report the calibration is compared to a no-wind condition to understand the effects of typical wind conditions on circulation. Also, wind conditions for approaching (winds from the southeast) and passing (winds from the north) frontal systems, typical of fall-winter weather patterns, were simulated. Results indicated the effects of wind can be significant. Harbors, Long Beach Harbor, Wind-driven circulation. Hydrodynamics, Numerical models, Los Angeles Harbor, Tidal circulation
Los Angeles and Long Beach Harbors Model Enhancement Program, tidal circulation prototype data collection effort by David D Mcgehee( Book )

6 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A tidal circulation study of the Los Angeles and Long Beach Harbors was conducted by the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station. Field data were collected from 5 tide gages and 16 current meters for use in calibration and verification of a numerical circulation model. The methods and results of the field data collection effort are presented. Analysis was performed to verify the quality of the tidal data and the flow patterns revealed by the current data
Los Angeles and Long Beach Harbors Model Enhancement Program, improved physical model harbor resonance methodology by William C Seabergh( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three long-period wave spectra were selected for use in the Los Angeles Long Beach Harbors physical models for harbor resonance studies. They included two storms: 1 February 1986 and the Martin Luther King Day Storm on 17 January 1988. An average condition wave spectrum was developed based on long- term wave information. These spectra were used to program the wave generators, and wave data were collected at seven harbor gages in the model where prototype data had been collected. A comparison of model and prototype data indicated good correlation. The model was constructed to the most recent harbor configuration and included Long Beach Harbor's Pier J expansion. Additional long-period wave data were collected at berth locations throughout the harbors for the three wave spectra conditions in order to have base data to compare with data collected for proposed plans of harbor development. This work will minimize time and cost for Los Angeles and Long Beach Harbors' harbor resonance studies. Harbor resonance, Long-period wave, Physical model

Numerical analysis of tidal circulation for Long Beach Harbor, report 1 : existing conditions and alternate plans for Pier J completion and tanker terminal study by Donald C Raney( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 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 tide and velocity data from the prototype and from physical model tests conducted at WES. For each Pier J modification considered, overall tidal circulation patterns were obtained hourly by vector plots of the tidal velocity at each finite difference cell. The change in overall tidal circulation patterns from those presently existing were also determined. The mass flow rates through the breakwater openings and channels were calculated and compared with those flows currently existing in the harbor. Changes in flow rates as a result of the Pier J modification were identified. (Author)
