On Acceleration of Barge Tows
The acceleration characteristics of barge tows are investigated by deriving functions for acceleration time and distance based on Howe's estimated resistance and effective-push...

Barge Transportation - Energizer of Production and Marketing
Barge shipping provides low cost transportation of bulk-loading commodities, which holds down production costs of finished goods, and stimulates industrial and market growth. Technological...

Mathematical Model of Barge Tow Performance
A mathematical model for predicting tow operating speeds is derived from test data and engineering principles. Land speed is expressed as a function of flotilla length, breadth, and draft,...

Verrazano-Narrow Bridge: Fabrication and Construction
Fabrication for the world's longest suspension bridge required expedited efforts of mills and fabricating shops and covered a wide range of materials. Towers, stiffening trusses,...

Practical Tonnage Capacity of Canalized Waterways
This paper develops the relationship between the practical tonnage capacity of a waterway and its maximum tonnage capacity. The relationship is found to be an approximate ratio of 1 to...

Barge Docks for Inland Waterways
Movement of materials on river barges has been traditionally considered to be relatively low in cost and slow. As a result, large quantities of bulk materials are moved on the rivers....

Wave Forces on Submerged Structures
Magnitude and characteristics of forces resulting from oscillatory waves on submerged barge-like structures; wave profiles and variation with time of resulting horizontal and vertical...

The Thomas H. Allen Electric Generating Station
Engineering problems resulting from natural site conditions and solution of important operating and building requirements; 865,500 kw capacity plant consists of three generating units...

New York State Barge Canal System
Canal system and its effect on economy of State and Nation as whole are analyzed; total mileage of Canal system is 527 mi with 151 mi of artificial land cut channels and 376 mi of canalized...

Wave Forces on Submerged Structures
Magnitude and characteristics of forces resulting from oscillatory waves on submerged barge-like structures; wave profiles and variation with time of resulting horizontal and vertical...

Calumet -Sag Navigation Project
Improvements to Calumet-Sag Channel connecting Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal and Calumet River have been completed; barge tows four times larger than present tows will be able to move...

Scientific Development in River Transportation
Progress made in model testing of push type river towboats and barge fleets; previous methods are shown to be inaccurate due to scale and neglect of propulsion effects; progress in improving...

Improving the Gulf Intracoastal Canal in Texas
As a result of increased traffic, the users of the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway have requested that the size of the present canal be increased in the reach extending from New Orleans, Louisiana,...

Modern Towboat and Barge Design
Historic development of towboats and their design and capacity since 1811; recent improvements which have increased efficiency....
