A multidisciplinary study was set up to tackle the nautical problems faced by Zeebrugge Harbor by the Maritime Access Division of the Flemish Community. The problem is twofold: strong cross-currents at the harbor mouth hinder the entrance of the ships around high water, and the occurrence of thick muddy layers hinders the navigation in the harbor and causes very high dredging costs. The article focuses on the global project set up, and explains more in detail the numerical and physical modeling research.
