LARGE SHALLOW DRAFT TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT: TECHNOLOGY/ECONOMIC INFORMATION BASE
The primary purpose of this study was to carry out a review of existing data pertaining to large shallow draft (LSD) ships and to assess the knowledge that serves as a base for technological and economic projections for major two-way flows of bulk commodities. Included in the report are the results of literature searches on hydrodynamic and structural characteristics of LSD vessels; a commodity flow survey of primary bulk cargo commodities that pass through U.S. ports; data on shipyards capable of producing shallow draft bulk carriers greater than 75,000 dwt with a beam of more than 120 feet; and an examination of alternatives to the use of LSD ships in moving bulk cargo.
