Abstract:

The report documents an experimental examination of the attainable cargo flowrate for two types of future landing craft air cushion and planing. Both forklift and crane off-loading were considered, and the performance using 96 inches x 108 inches large pallets was compared with that using 40 inches x 48 inches pallets. It was found that the large pallet concept can increase the productivity of the forklift by more than 300 and the crane by approximately 200 over what is possible with the standard pallet.
