Abstract: The legacy Mo-Mat expeditionary mobility matting system used extensively by the U.S. Marine Corps is no longer manufactured. Work performed by the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) (Rushing and Rowland 2012) indicated that replication of the legacy matting system was feasible. Therefore, the U.S. Marine Corps Systems Command initiated a Small Business Innovative Research effort in order to identify a small business that could develop a replicate system. Previous work at ERDC (Floyd 2017) verified that the performance of the WavTrac expeditionary mobility matting system was comparable to the legacy Mo-Mat mobility matting system when placed over a loose sand (beach crossing) subgrade or a soft soil subgrade (mud flat). This report details a second evaluation of the WavTrac expeditionary mobility matting system on a high-plasticity clay subgrade with a California Bearing Ratio of 6%.
