The paper descriptionbed the construction and operation of a 'distorted' model of Table Bay and harbour to reproduce two forms of surging which occur in the actual harbour, one of which is responsible for 'ranging' of moored ships and the other for a 'pumping' action of the basins. Various schemes to overcome these difficulties which were tried in the model, were also descriptionbed.
