Description: Technical memorandum
Introduction: This report describes approximately 750 recorded vehicular tests of off-the-road performance of military vehicles, both self-propelled led and towed, and offers a system for classifying vehicles based thereon. The study was authorized in the "Plan of Tests, Trafficability Studies, Fiscal Year 1951," by the Engineer Research and Development Laboratories as a part of project No. 8-70-05-01. Previous trafficability investigations were made by the Engineer Board, Corps of Engineers, at Yuma, Arizona; Salton Sea, California; Camp Hulen, Texas; and by ·the Waterways Experiment Station at Vicksburg, Mississippi. Details of these investigations are given in the following reports: Waterways Experiment Station publication, "Trafficability of Soils," 1 September 1945; and Engineer Board Report No. 950, “Investigations of Methods and Equipment for Crossing Artificial Mud Areas," 4 September 1945. Certain phases of the current trafficability program have been completed and preliminary reports are available. The reports have been published by the Waterways Experiment Station under the general heading "Trafficability of Soils," Technical Memorandum 3-240, and are referred to by supplement number.
