Abstract:In the Spring of 1918, at the request of the Committee on Inland Waterways, of the United States Railroad Administration., the Concrete Ship Section of the Emergency Fleet Corporation undertook the design of a standard reinforced-concrete canal barge for use by the Railroad Administration on the New York State Barge Canal. The barge was to have a carrying capacity of 500 long tons; was to meet the requirements of form and dimension of the New York State Barge Canal Regulations, and was to have such exterior form as to be easily propelled at six miles an hour. The barge was to be without power equipment, but was to be provided with means of towing and steering.
