Abstract: Physical modeling is a practical tool in the design of coastal projects. A physical model of Barbers Point Harbor located on the island of Oahu, Hawaii was constructed so that different harbor configurations could be investigated. Both short period (less than 25 seconds) and long period waves were analyzed to determine the best relationship between channel configuration and wave climate.
