Abstract

This paper describes the analysis of the design and operational conditions of Raices Quay Extension (Port of Aviles, Spain) using computer based methods. During the development of this project, wave climate and wave propagation conditions were defined, current field was compared before and after dredging the channel and ship entrance manoeuvres were reproduced in a real-time simulator. As a result of the study, nautical recommendations aimed for better operational conditions and safety were elaborated. Introduction The Port of Aviles is located in the North Coast of Spain, facing the Atlantic. It is an important fishing port but aluminum and iron ore, fertilizers, scrap metals and steel products are also relevant due to the local chemical and heavy industries. T
