A refined estimation scheme was applied in the calculation of bending plates of the slipway-deck and pontoon bottom, which accounts for the work of reinforcement structure in both directions. Accounting for the work of reinforcement structures in both directions makes it possible to accurately estimate the structural strength and provide recommendations on their design in terms of material consumption and optimal size. When modeling work of concrete, we took into consideration that concrete at stretching has a less rigidity for stretching than for compression.</p><p>It has been shown that the developed design and construction technology of the composite dock with a reduced number of framing sets in the pontoon makes it possible to expand the technological capabilities of dock construction. The results derived from the calculations of cumulative stresses in the slabs of the dock’s pontoon stack-deck showed that the actual safety factors meet the requirements for strength. Given that the structure of concrete slabs perceives the moment of resistance that is several times larger than that of steel, it becomes possible to increase the span of a slab and to erect less supports-bulkheads. The result would be the reduced material costs and the decreased labor intensity of operations at dock construction.</p>We have proposed a structure and a construction technology for a composite dock with a reduced number of framing sets in the pontoon. It has been shown that the erection of transverse bulkheads between the inner boards in 4 quadrats, that is, in 3 meters, as well as the absence of lack frames, and floors and beams, in concrete towers, makes it possible to reduce the amount of materials, as well as bring down the labor intensity of dock construction.
