Abstract Although road-based freight transport has large external costs, it currently dominates the hinterland cargo transport sector in Europe. An increase of the automation levels of inland cargo vessels could advance their competitiveness, hence unlocking more sustainable inland cargo transport. Moreover, these improvements could pave the way for a potential future paradigm shift towards unmanned inland cargo vessels. Therefore, this study investigates the design of an experimental platform i...

This study discusses the experimental identification of the dynamic characteristics for an operational 1/25 scale model of the Watertruck+ self-propelling barge of CEMT class I. Parameters such as flow rate, acceleration, thrust and speed-dependent resistance forces in the longitudinal direction are determined. The operational scale model discussed in this paper includes a hull with length 1.54 m, width of 0.2 m and height of 0.2 m. All experiments are performed at an indoor pool to reduce envir...
