NEW FRONTIERS IN BULK TRANSFER TECHNOLOGY

The rational planning of terminals with today's complexity requires operation research and simulation techniques. The PIRTLOG computer program developed for this purpose is capable of simulating the operations of a port complex, and the related ship, barge, railroad or truck input and output. PIRTLOG is utilized in selecting the number, size and capacity of berths and handling equipment, stockpile and inventory requirements, is assessing the effects of fleet distribution and berth availability, for sensitivity analysis of all systems to variations of criteria, and for value engineering analysis, determining the impact of changes in one area on another or on the overall system. To assist in the planning of offshore terminals, the SEABERTH computer program was developed.
