Abstract : A study of harbor resonance due to long-period wave excitation was conducted in the Los Angeles and Long Beach Harbors hydraulic model for Phase I of the proposed Los Angeles deep-draft dry bulk export terminal, and results were compared with resonant response for existing conditions. Proposed modifications for the deep-draft dry bulk export terminal included (a) dredging a navigation channel and maneuvering area and (b) creating a new landfill of approximately 340 acres in the Port of Los Angeles.
