Abstract : This report presents the findings and conclusions of a computer simulation study of the Welland Canal and proposed alternatives to the Welland. The objective of this study was to establish the limits of service for alternative structural and nonstructural improvements in terms of delay and transit time. Waterborne transport demand through the year 2030 was considered in the analysis, demand being represented by two factors, traffic density and fleet composition. The results of the study were portrayed as a series of transit time response curves for each configuration, plotted as a function of the transport demand. (Author)
