Abstract: The study reported herein was funded by Department of the Army Project 4A061101A91D, "In-House Laboratory Independent Research," sponsored by the Assistant Secretary of the Army (R&D). The study was conducted during 1971-72. The project was conceived by Mr. G. W. Turnage of the Mobility Research and Methodology Branch (MRMB), Mobility Systems Division, Mobility and Environmental Systems Laboratory (MESL), at the U. S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES). The high-speed loading device used in the project was constructed under contract by WNRE, Inc., Chestertown, Md. The test program was accomplished by personnel of the MRMB under the general supervision of Mr. W. G. Shockley, Chief of the MESL, and under the direct supervision of Mr. S. J. Knight, former Chief of the MRMB, now retired. The report was prepared by Mr. Turnage. Special acknowledgment is made to Dr. Dieter Schuring, Cornell Aeronautical Laboratory, Buffalo, N. Y., for furnishing the author with certain data used in this report, which were obtained from tests conducted at the Battelle Institute, Frankfurt, Germany, and for his permission to use these data. COL Ernest D. Peixotto, CE, was Director of the WES during the study and the preparation of this report. Mr. F. R. Brown was Technical Director.
