PARAMETERIC STUDY OF A COLUMN SUPPORTED FLOUTING AIRFIELD --AIRPORT PLANNING FOR CONSTRUCTION OF LARGE BASE AT SEA USING STABILIZED LEGS
The report discusses the feasibility of constructing a large base or airfield at sea using stabilized legs. The legs, connecting struts, and other equipment would be transported by barge to the building site. There, the barge and payload would be flipped to the vertical and assembled with the option that the barge might or might not be included as a part of the platform.
