This report describes the analysis of tank barge damage as reported in special survey reports from Coast Guard field inspectors. The damages were analyzed in terms of general type, frequency of occurrence in various areas of the barge and general size to develop measures for the effectiveness of double barriers in eliminating tank penetrations. Estimates for expected benefits of various double-barrier options are discussed.
