Abstract:

The Committee on Hazardous Materials were requested by the U.S. Coast Guard now an agency of the U.S. Department of Transportation to review the technical and engineering fundamentals which relate to safe cargo containment of dangerous cargos. The Panel on Cargo Containment compiled, reviewed, and analyzed factual data useful to the Coast Guard and to anyone interested in the problems related to a more complete understanding of cargo containment of vessels in marine transportation, with specific attention to control of over pressure during emergency conditions such as involvement in a fire.
