Abstract : A 1:100-scale (undistorted) hydraulic model of the western portion of Cleveland Harbor, which was used initially to determine effects of proposed improvements at Cleveland Harbor main entrance with respect to ship maneuverability, wave and current action, and riverflow conditions was used to determine the effects of various improvement plans with respect to wave and current action at Edgewater Marina, located at the western boundary of Cleveland Harbor. Improvements at Edgewater Marina consisted of modifications to the harbor entrance and channel, installation of new breakwaters, modifications to the existing structures, and installation of rubble absorbers in the harbor. A 120-ft-long wave generator and an Automated Data Acquisition and Control System were utilized in model operation.
