Abstract: Late in 2009 CSIR Built Environment in Stellenbosch was awarded a contract to carry out extensive physical and numerical modelling to study the wave conditions and associated moored ship motions, for the design of a new iron ore export jetty for BHP Billiton, at Port Hedland in north-west Australia. International consultants WF Baird and Associates are reviewing all technical aspects of the project and also have staff attending the tests. The project had tight deadlines and required extreme accuracy of modelling due to the small nature of the long-period design waves. It is this long-wave energy that has the ability to excite the large moored bulk-ore carrier vessels, which can be in excess of 300 000 Dead Weight Ton (DWT)
