Title (EN) FLOATING DRY DOCK
(FR) DOCK DE RADOUB FLOTTANT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A dry dock (10) having flotation chambers (18, 19) on two opposite sides of the load-carrying platform (12) is submerged by flooding the flotation chambers. A reversible air pump (30) is used to raise the dry dock by first blowing water out of the chambers then sucking water from the platform into the chambers and then again blowing water out of the chambers. The structure of the dry dock allows it to be used also as a submergible barge.
