Problem Statement
Ships/Water/Fluid and Marine Transportation Systems are used to carry large amount of payload like goods/passengers etc. These vehicles has large sizes or surface area, So that required upward force magnitude by water can achieved to float (Archimedes’ Principle).

In other words, To carry large amount of Weight (payload) we have to increase the surface area or size and strength of these systems.

Whereas, Total Weight = Self Weight of Vehicle + Payload.             …Equation 1.
To increase efficiency, Total weight dependency on payload would have to be eliminate as expressed in above Equation 1.

Increase in payload without increasing the size of Ship/water/Fluid/Marine Vehicles, rajiv.s

Increase in payload without increasing the size of Ship/water/Fluid/Marine vehicles, rajiv.s

Solution Statement
According to Pascal’s principle “The pressure throughout a closed system is constant”.
Following this Principle,
There is installation of Hydraulic Press type arrangement on the lower floor of the Ship.

Pistons will carry weight vertically. There will not be side component of weight on cylinder wall.
Whole System is filled with incompressible fluid.

Loading distribution
Smaller piston surface and larger piston surface will carry small and large magnitude of weight or force respectively.
The pressure intensity will equally distribute in fluid throughout the system.
System can sustain maximum pressure equals to bursting strength.

Concept behind the Innovation
There will no effect of increase in payload on Total Wight.
Mean to say that magnitude of payload placed on piston surface will transfer to fluid but not to floor of Ship.
Total weight dependency on payload will eliminate, as expressed in above equation 1.
So Now,
Total weight = weight of the vehicle + weight of system (Pascal’s principle system).

An example to clear the above Design.
Tire tube filled with air is lying on Weight Scale.
Filling more air in tube will cause its pressure to increase dramatically as compare to increase in its weight on weight scale.

By filling more air inside the same volume of tube will cause air particles to pack closely with each other. So density will increase or Weight-Scale magnitude reading will increase.

On the other hand if the fluid is incompressible, then change in density will be in negligible amount or Weight-Scale magnitude reading will remain same or minute change will occur. But pressure will increase inside the tube and Intensity of pressure will distribute in all directions in same magnitude.
Pressure intensity have to bear by longitudinal and circumferential strengths of system material.

Above discussed arrangement cause it possible to carry Large amount of weight (payload) on Water/Fluid/Marine Transportation Systems without facing any problem of sinking these systems into the Water/fluid/Sea.
