NAVIGATION--THROUGH STRUCTURES FOR HIGH-SPEED AND SMALL-TONNAGE SHIPS

In the USSR, the recent development of passenger traffic on inland waterways by small-tonnage, high-speed ships--such as hydrofoils-- has created difficulties arising from the need of these ships to pass through hydroprojects. They must go through navigation locks that are primarily intended for the simultaneous passage of several ships together, or even with barge trains. This paper suggests solutions to resolve the difficulty, one of which is the provision of a separate lock intended for high-speed traffic.
