Abstract : The general trend is toward wider and heavier military equipment. As the present bridging equipage is not adequate to handle such load increases, the Engineer Board was directed to design, develop and test Division and Army Floating Bridges, consistent with limitations placed on weight, transportation, and erection time. This report covers the development completed during the period of 20 September 1943 to 1 May 1944.
