dc.descriptionAbstract: Engineer design tests were performed on a dust-control system, i.e. material and prototype emplacement equipment, from 18 December 1970 to 2 August 1971. The performance of the dust-control material exceeded the criteria of the currently existent Qualitative Materiel Requirement. Only minor deficiencies were noted and these deficiencies will be corrected by specification changes that will place closer controls on suppliers of dust-control materials. The liquid distributor for dust control described herein performed well on-road, off-road, and during spraying operations. There were no major equipment failures. The minor deficiencies that were encountered could be readily corrected. During the tests, modifications were made that improved vehicle operation. Design changes will be required in order to meet the vehicle weight requirement and to improve the maintainability of the vehicle. Based on the results of the tests reported herein, it is concluded that the dust-control system is suitable for for engineering tests/expanded service tests.-
