A Shipbuilder's Views on River Towboat Vibration 630162

This paper discusses causes, prevention, and possible corrective measures for river towboat vibration. Also discussed is the problem of resolving the amount of vibration acceptable to both owners and builders before corrective action is indicated in a specific vessel. The author suggests that sufficient research into towboat vibration be accomplished to establish some numerical parameters that can be used as standards of acceptance for vibration limits.
