Assessment of the Possibility of Large Draughted Vessels Navigation on the Lower Sector of the Danube

Procjena mogucnosti plovidbe brodova velikoga gaza na sektoru donjeg Dunava

The development of the cargo transportation in river-sea traffic depends directly on technical-exploitative characteristics of the network of inland waterways, which enable navigational connections between riverbeds and the seas. In such manner, by using the combined (riversea) transport without reloading, cargo is better protected and the loss of cargo is reduced to minimum, and the delivery time and delays, due to different technological operations during the transport process when changing the transport means, are avoided. The research of navigational abilities on inland waterways and near-shore sea itineraries always have to be performed before building ships which are the most suitable for such conditions on rivers and seas. This paper intends to determine the possible size of draught of river-sea vessels in the lower sector of the Danube as one of their most important technical characteristics.
