Analysis of the Existing Parameters of the Ports Entrances in the World in Terms of Their Design
1 Maritime University of Szczecin, Szczecin, Poland
ABSTRACT: This article aims to analyse the statistical parameters of waterways forming the entrance to the port and the construction of a model for determining the optimum parameters of the entrance to the port. It has been analyzed parameters of the entrances to the 100 selected global ports, based on the analysis it was examined the interdependence between certain parameters and the impact they have on the maximum size of the ship which can enter to the port. This analysis allowed to develop a model, which can possible to be applied to the entrance of initial port design.
