Objectives
To develop a numerical model to predict the wave climate in Victoria Harbour under the influence of ship navigation and land reclamation, and to provide general guidance for the optimisation of both reclamation and fairway planning. The knowledge acquired will be useful for improving the current condition of the harbour and to optimise the design of future harbours as well.
