Vessel traffic in ports is a key issue due to the high increase in vessel flows that lead to busier waterways. This dissertation presents novel methodologies to assess vessel traffic in ports based on capacity and risk independently and jointly. These methodologies have been applied to case studies using simulation models and AIS data. They provide a framework to support decision makers when assessing new infrastructure designs, expansions or changes in the vessel traffic management
