The blockage of Egypt’s Suez Canal in March shone renewed focus on just how many goods are shipped around the world and how fragile those routes can be.
Given the shipping industry’s importance in the U.S., American planners must have world-class tools to prevent a comparable disaster from congesting American waterways.
On the latest episode of the Power of ERDC podcast, we talk with Dr. Keith Martin, a research physicist at ERDC’s Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory and lead of ERDC’s Ship Simulator program. Dr. Martin discusses how ERDC’s Ship Simulator precisely models how vessels respond to wind, waves, currents, and other ships -- enabling safer waterways, better and more efficient port designs, and more precise military littoral operations planning.
