Abstract:

Tests were performed to determine the feasibility of erecting an elevated pontoon causeway in the surf zone of an open beach. Ammi pontoons, measuring 90x28x5 feet, served as test vehicles. Techniques for installing an elevated causeway in a surf environment were evaluated functions requiring refinement andor further development were identified. Two independent tests were performed - one at the beach interface and one in 20 feet of water approximately 300 feet from shore. Estimates of time, manpower, and equipment required to erect an elevated causeway were derived from the experiment.
