Abstract:

An attempt was made to develop a 21-ft wide NL pontoon causeway capable of being end-to-end connected as a means for providing an improved causeway for handling 60-ton loads from LSTs to shore. The following effort supports this objective To investigate methods for providing an adjustable causeway section for use with the 3 x 15 pontoon causeway. Various concepts of adjusting a causeway section length are considered with respect to desirable characteristics. Those having merit are further reviewed to arrive at the most feasible concept.
