Abstract : The development of a 20-Knot Class LST has necessitated the development of a new method of LST-to-causeway connection which accommodates the new-type LST as well as the old. This report describes a theoretical study of the problems involved with the 20-Knot-LST connection, the development and test of the NCEL proposed Abutment Connection, and the analysis and test of the BUSHIPS Stand-off Connection.
