dc.description.abstractThe 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 major portion of the study was conducted during 1972-73, although some results are presented for the first time from tests conducted several years earlier. The project was conceived by Mr. G. W. Turnage of the Mobility Research and Methodology Branch (MRMB), Mobility Systems Division (MSD), Mobility and Environmental Systems Laboratory (MESL), at the U. S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES). The test program was accomplished by personnel of the MRMB and the Mobility Investigations Branch (MIB) under the general supervision of Mr. W. G. Shockley, Chief of MESL, and Mr. A. A. Rula, Chief of MSD, and under the direct supervision of Mr. C. J. Nuttall, Jr., Chief of MRMB, and Mr. E. S. Rush, Chief of MIB. The hitherto unreported data were obtained under the direction of Mr. L. J. Lanz, formerly of WES. All other phases of the study were directed by Mr. Turnage, MRMB, who prepared this report. BG E. D. Peixotto, CE, and COL G. H. Hilt, CE, were Directors of the WES during.conduct of this study and preparation of the report. Mr. F. R. Brown was Technical Director.en_US
