3 HarborSym History IWR modeling philosophy:IWR modeling philosophy: –Transparency –Portability –Ease of use Initial application: Sabine Neches Waterway, Galveston District, 2002Initial application: Sabine Neches Waterway, Galveston District, 2002 GOAL: Generic Corps-wide model GOAL: Generic Corps-wide model

4 HarborSym & Tampa Harbor Partnership began 2/2003Partnership began 2/2003 Problem: widening study to reduce transit delaysProblem: widening study to reduce transit delays Needed additional features beyond Sabine versionNeeded additional features beyond Sabine version

9 Incorporating Tide & Current Vessels use tide in TampaVessels use tide in Tampa Pilots tide & current rulesPilots tide & current rules –Passage restricted to maximum vessel draft + tide –No movement allowed for certain vessels if current in reach > X Translated into HarborSym reachesTranslated into HarborSym reaches

10 Tidal Rules

11 Only astronomical (not meteorological) tidesOnly astronomical (not meteorological) tides Harmonic AnalysisHarmonic Analysis –Code Available Xtide, Wxtide, Underkeel Clearance Model Tide StationsTide Stations –Primary station long term records used to develop constants –Secondary station prediction derived from Primary –Secondary provide lag/attenuation Factors (based on short term records ) Tide Prediction

12 Tide Usage in HarborSym Generate external data files for a year, read by HarborSymGenerate external data files for a year, read by HarborSym node interpolated based on nearest node interpolated based on nearest stations Evaluate tide rules for vessel movement, preclude movement if violationEvaluate tide rules for vessel movement, preclude movement if violation

13 Vessel Generator Why? –TOO MUCH DATA –Difficult to create future vessel call lists –Populate the model

14 Generated Calls - Data Requirements –Future fleet estimate Specific fleet or vessel class populationSpecific fleet or vessel class population # of vessels / # of possible calls (inter-arrival time)# of vessels / # of possible calls (inter-arrival time) –Dock-level commodity forecast –Constraints Vessel classes calling each dockVessel classes calling each dock Vessel classes carrying each commodityVessel classes carrying each commodity Vessel Generator

15 Current Assumptions Each vessel call carries one commodity to/from a single dockEach vessel call carries one commodity to/from a single dock –No intra-harbor movements Each vessel call is either import/exportEach vessel call is either import/export Yearly basis (no seasonality)Yearly basis (no seasonality) Will be relaxed in later versionsWill be relaxed in later versions

16 Generated Calls Procedure 1.Allocation priority for vessel classes 2.Assign vessel calls from fleet to satisfy commodity forecasts (priority order) 3.Assign trip frequency based on inter- arrival time 4.Continue until forecast satisfied, or no more vessels available with trips

17 Reports: –Unsatisfied demands –Vessels used to satisfy demand –Vessel Trips / Excess Fleet Capacity Vessel Generator

18 Future Directions Deepening Model –Build upon existing vessel generator –Transit rules to accommodate deepening behavior

19 Model Demonstration
