A modular system that provides multiple support surfaces for a large heavy object and enables movement of that object with no friction (e.g., on a cushion of air). Each module has an object support surface and a bearing that enables the modules and the heavy object being supported thereby to be moved across a floor with no friction. Each module restrains a portion of the object on top within a frame that opens to allow the supported portion of the object to move off the support surface of the module and onto a stationary object support structure (e.g., a...
1. A method for moving an object having a plurality of air bearings on a bottom portion thereof onto an object support structure stationed on a floor, the object support structure being built to support the object at an elevation higher than the floor elevation, the method comprising: (a) placing a plurality of mobile support modules or a plurality of stacks of mobile support modules on the floor, each mobile support module comprising an air bearing on a bottom portion thereof;(b) arranging the object and the mobile support modules so that the object sit...
