Abstract:Handling a large ship to enter and berth in Taichung harbor is seriously affected by strong current and north-east monsoon. For the increase of navigational safety of the forth generation container ships and Panamax bulk carriers Taichung Harbor Bureau decided to build an extension of harbor in 1998, including prolonging the north outer breakwater, destroying parts of the outer and inner south breakwaters. The work will be completed in August 2003. This project is a real-time simulation exercise performed by the ship-handling simulator in NTOU. The purpose of the project is to evaluate the safety of ships navigating in the harbor channel and berthing in Taichung harbor under different environmental effects with the rebuilt breakwaters and water depth after the extension. The exercise has to run with a container ship, a bulk carrier and a LNG carrier and under some kinds of wind forces and currents. At least 152 runs have to be tested. The result of the exercise will establish optimum measures of handling ships and make some suggestion about navigational safety for large ships entering and berthing in Taichung harbor to solve problems of large ships.
