DEVELOPMENTS IN TECHNOLOGY AS APPLIED TO RIVER EQUIPMENT
A substantial program of structural research has been carried out in the United States during the past thirty years. The marine transportation system operating on the inland rivers represents a significant portion of the domestic marine business, yet none of this research has been aimed specifically at problems associated with the river business. This paper relates some of the reasons for this phenomenon and describes how some of the research done for others has been applied to river problems. A brief discussion of how research and development is carried out within the industry is also included.
