Field campaign on pressure on the crown wall at the outer port of Punta Langosteira breakwater
[Abstract:] Punta Langosteira port, located in A Coruña (Spain), was monitored during the winters of 2017 and 2018, measuring wave pressure in the crown wall structure. Furthermore, the metocean variables were measured on ...
Integrated Approach to Assess Resonance Between Basin Eigenmodes and Moored Ship Motions With Wavelet Transform Analysis and Proposal of Operational Thresholds
[Abstract] Waves with periods between 25 s and some minutes can amplify the motions of moored ships, which may result in terminal downtimes and compromise safety. The purpose of this work is twofold: (i) studying infragravity ...
Machine Learning Based Moored Ship Movement Prediction
[Abstract] Several port authorities are involved in the R+D+i projects for developing port management decision-making tools. We recorded the movements of 46 ships in the Outer Port of Punta Langosteira (A Coruña, Spain) ...
The influence of infragravity waves, wind, and basin resonance on vessel movements and related downtime at the Outer Port of Punta Langosteira, Spain
[Abstract:] The coupling of low-frequency oscillatory modes of a harbor with horizontal motions of moored ships can amplify the latter, causing operational and safety problems. The objectives of this study were to analyze ...
A decision-making tool for port operations based on downtime risk and met-ocean conditions including infragravity wave forecast
[Abstract:] Port downtime leads to economic losses and reductions in safety levels. This problem is generally assessed in terms of uni-variable thresholds, despite its multidimensional nature. The aim of the present study ...
Dynamic calculation of breakwater crown walls under wave action: influence of soil mechanics and shape of the loading state
[Abstract:] As a consequence of the action of waves on rubble mound breakwaters, there are loads—both on the vertical and horizontal sides of the crown walls—which modify the conditions of their stability. These loads ...
