CONCEPTUAL STUDIES AND PRELIMINARY DESIGN OF A 300 TON CAPACITY CARGO TRANSPORTER BARGE

The report describes the conceptual studies which were carried out, and the development of the preliminary design, for the 300 Ton Capacity Cargo Transporter Barge. Conceptual design studies were carried out to determine the optimum barge concept; in these studies, particular emphasis was given to determination of the optimum arrangement of the stowed MILVANS, since the basic information on optimum hull forms, propulsion/maneuvering systems, and cargo handling systems had been developed for the 180 ton Transporter Barge design. The preliminary design which has been prepared includes a description of the major barge subsystems, a summary of all significant design analyses performed, and a set of standard preliminary design drawings.
