Pagination or Media Count:
The report presents an innovative concept for offloading containers from non-self-sustaining containerships at naval advanced bases. The concept is described by means of extensive graphic representations which are accompanied by narrative discussions and performance and cost data. System operations over a sustained period of time, and performance levels for average and extreme sea conditions are covered. All of the ancillary operations such as maneuvering, repositioning, alignment, transport and erection are covered. The main design analyses performed in formulating the concept are included. Finally, a program for continuing development through the prototype is outlined. Author
