Abstract : Lowering and lifting systems for fixed ocean facilities are described. A comprehensive breakdown of lifting-system technology is given in terms of all possible classes and subclasses of equipment and parameters, each class and subclass being described by relatively terse verbal statements, including pertinent numerical and mathematical information. The report is not an engineering manual, but rather a tutorial exposition for managers and program planners in ocean engineering and construction. A specific objective of this report is presentation of minimal background information to be used in establishment of methods and criteria for the Navy's ocean facilites engineering efforts. The report includes a discussion of the impact of lifting-system technology on other areas of technology within the field of ocean facilities engineering, and, also, the impact of other technologies on lifting systems.
