Description: Technical Report
Abstract: A test program was conducted at the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES), Vicksburg, Miss., to obtain mobility performance data for the ROLAND Wheeled Vehicle, a modified M812A1, 6x6 cargo chassis, with 11x20 tires and a gross weight of 50,239 lb. Static measurements of vehicle characteristics were made and field tests were conducted to: obtain experimental ride quality data on the driver's and commander 's stations; to obtain vehicle handling data; and to provide limited test data that would indicate side slope, turning, and braking capabilities. Test results were used to develop ride and shock relations for use in the Army Mobility Model (AMM). The report describes the test program and methods presented, and summarizes measurements made in the dynamics, side slope, turning, and braking tests. Increased weight and center of gravity height do not significantly affect ride and shock dynamic responses as compared to the standard M813A1 5-ton, 6x6, cargo truck. Turning, braking, and side slope performances are moderately degraded.
