Description: Every planning of a port development or design of a new harbour is confrontated with in itself unique physical properties, boundary conditions and problems to be solved. What ports have in common is that they all constitute a link in the transport chain and an interface between transport modes. As a result every port comprises a number of systems:
- The wet infra structure (approach channels, manoevring areas, mooring basins);
- A system of aids to navigate, to enable the ship to make a safe landfall (system of towage, pilot system);
- The dry infra structure (terminals with cargo handling and storage facilities, through transport systems).
In port studies, generally two main subjects can be identified, viz. improvement of the existing situation, and design of a required future situation.
For the purpose of optimizing port facilities in relation to capacities demands port operations have to be analyzed, a process which is often facilitated by applying complex port simulation-models. However sometimes a relatively simple-empirical approach or queuing theory can be used. Concerning the choice of the method, always due attention should be paid to the local situation.
