Description: Technical Report
Abstract: The shipment of large volumes of military containerized cargo for the support of troops in the theater of operation requires sustained use of strategic ports and their facilities. The enemy may employ hostile actions to render these port facilities inoperable or to deny access to the facilities . Repairs should be conducted as quickly as possible to restore damaged port areas for the transfer of supplies from support ships to shore facilities and inland. The purpose of this study is to analyze, develop, design, and recommend concepts that can be used for the expedient repair of container handling ports. This study also focuses on solutions to war-damaged pier and wharf decking.
