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.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.11.03.03}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Ships Manoeuvering, Parameters of the Ports Entrances, Statistical Parameters of Waterways, Maritime Traffic Engineering, Entrance to the Port, Port Design, Maximum Size of the Ship, Main Harbours} }
