Title (EN) FLOATABLE CONCRETE PALLET FOR LIFTING AND BEARING HEAVY LOADS
(FR) PALETTE FLOTTANTE EN BETON POUR HISSER ET PORTER DES FARDEAUX LOURDS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The object of the invention is to avoid the shipyards and costly and complicated special construction techniques in constructing a floatable pallet and to utilize the pallet in the construction and transportation of an industrial plant from a location where building such a plant is favorable to the installation location of the plant where local conditions are unfavorable. The pallet having a precast, prestressed concrete grillage superstructure including layers of elongate elements (20, 22, 24), each successively higher layer being transverse to the layer below it for heavy load bearing objects such as an industrial processing plant. The elongate elements (20, 22, 24) are not only useful in providing the load-bearing points, but are useful in providing long channels between the elements which are useful as manways and for carrying pipe, conduits and the like that are associated with an industrial processing plant the heavy load typically lifted and carried by such a pallet. The intersection points or junctions of the elements (20, 22, 24) from layer to layer are load bearing points for distributing in radiating fashion the load placed on the top deck slab (12) of the pallet. The individual elements (20, 22, 24) being joined together by anchors and seats which are conventional in prestressed concrete structures.
(FR)L"objet de l"invention est d"eviter les chantiers navals et les techniques speciales couteuses et compliquees pour la construction d"une palette flottante et pour l"utilisation de la palette dans la construction et le transport d"une machine industrielle d"un endroit ou la construction d"une telle machine est favorable jusqu"a l"emplacement d"installation de la machine, ou les conditions locales sont defavorables. La palette ayant une superstructure grillagee en beton pre-coule precontraint comprenant des couches d"element allonges (20, 22, 24) chaque couche etant disposee transversalement par rapport a la couche sous- jacente pour supporter des objets de fardeaux lourds tel qu"une machine industrielle. L es elements allonges (20, 22, 24) sont non seulement utiles en fournissant les points de support de poids, mais sont aussi utiles en fournissant les longs canaux entre les elements qui sont utiles en tant que trous d"hommes et pour conduire les tuyaux, les conduites et autres qui sont associes a une machine de travail industriel, qui est le fardeau lourd typiquement hisse et porte par une telle palette. Les points d"intersection ou de jonction des elements (20, 22, 24) de couche a couche sont des points de support de fardeau pour la distribution de maniere radiante du poids place sur la plaque de pont superieur (12) de la palette. Les elements individuels (20, 22, 24) etant relies les uns aux autres par des ancres et des sieges qui sont conventionnels dans des structures de beton precontraint.
