  • Abstract: AbstractVila Praia de Âncoraharbor is subject to a heavy siltation, being necessary an annual dredging of the whole harbour, in order to maintain the sailing conditions for the fishing boats.An hydrodynamic model of the coast area allowed to identify the causes for that heavy siltation and is presented. Additionally, in order to reduce the rate and dredging volume, some alternative remedial works are proposed, and the most interesting solution is detailed.As a consequence of the presented analysis, it can be stated that the problems occurring in this harbour, regarding the high siltation rate, are due to a not enough detailed hydrodynamic study during the project phase, and so the referred harbour's layout is inadequate to the particular hydrodynamic situation of the area.
