Abstract : A study was performed to determine response of the harbor of Port Hueneme to incident periodic and dispersive (explosion) waves. A newly developed analytical method capable of treating harbors of arbitrary shape is utilized and the corresponding computer program is included in an appendix. Response to waves generated by three hypothetical nuclear explosions of 1, 5 and 10 MT in the Santa Cruz Basin is calculated as is the resulting run-up along adjacent shorelines. (Author)
