RIVER TOW BEHAVIOR IN WATERWAYS. REPORT 1. EXXON TEST PROGRAM

This is the final report on a program to obtain and analyze river tow behavior data. This report describes the first full-scale tow test program conducted in this country in which second-by-second records of tow position, attitude, rudder, power, and river environment parameters are obtained and analyzed. The study demonstrates the feasibility of using off-the-shelf position fixing and rudder angle recording equipment to measure the dynamic behavior of river tows.
