We have all seen the large river mo

We have all seen the large river mo

We have all seen the large river mooring cells that were used to hold barges in place.
I need to speak with a structural engineer regarding the load capacities of these mooring cells.
Please email me at dmiller@potesta.com to discuss details.


RE: We have all seen the large river mo

Dan - you'd be better off contacting a local structural engineer, or a larger national firm that deals with this kind of structure - it is a specialty area of practice. I've done a couple barge facilities in Virginia, and I'd love to help, but I'm not licensed in Pennsylvania.

RE: We have all seen the large river mo

I went to a couple of Webinars by Nucor Skyline on marine structures where they discusses these. They called them cellular structures and they're used for a lot of functions. About halfway through this presentation they talk about some design aspects. A lot. But I'd still talk to either an engineer who designs these or contact Nucor Skyline and see if they know anyone who could help. Try engineering@nucorskyline.com.

Might want to talk to a Naval Architect too...
