OFFSHORE TERMINALLING INSTRUMENTATION SYSTEM. FINAL REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS
This report describes the work accomplished during Phases A and B of a four phase program designed to develop useful correlation between the design characteristics of open sea cargo terminal and visiting vessel dynamics as developed by computer analysis, model testing and/or full scale terminal/vessel testing. Open sea mooring and cargo transfer characteristics were of primary concern. The study determined that additional basic research is required before meaningful results pertaining to the program objective could be obtained. It also introduces a proprietary controlled mooring concept, and recommends that a program be structured to bring this advancement in the state-of-the-art mooring and cargo transfer concept to the commercial market.
