Abstract:

This reports basic task is that of developing the mathematical model simulating the following cargo unloading procedure. The cargo is to be unloaded from a ship at some distance from the shore. The final destination of the cargo is to be at a point on the beach where no port facilities are available. The transferring of cargo from the ship to the transfer vehicles is to be accomplished by ship-based unloading gear, such as ship-based cranes. The cargo transfer from the transfer vehicles on the shore is to be accomplished by beach- based unloading gear, such as fork lifts. The simulation enables the user to gain insight into the unloading procedure and thus to derive correctly the optimal use strategy of the ship-to-shore transfer operations, which is the ultimate goal of the present analysis.
