dc.description.abstractThe study reported herein was performed by the U. S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (vms) as a part of the overall Mobility Exercise A (MEXA) program sponsored by the U. S. Army Materiel Command (AMC). Most of the funds for the MEXA program were provided under Project No. 1T062109Al31, "Military Evaluation of Geographic Areas"; however, final analysis and report preparation were funded under Project No. 1T0621031A046, "Trafficability and Mobility Research," Task 02, "Surface Mobility." This study was conducted by personnel of the Vehicle Studies Branch under the general supervision of Mr. W. J. Turnbull, Technical Assistant for Soils and Environmental Engineering; Mr. W. G. Shockley, Chief, Mobility and Environmental (M&E) Division; Mr. S. J. Knight, Assistant Chief, M&E Division; Mr. A. A. Rula, Chief, Vehicle Studies Branch, and Mr. E. S. Rush, Chief, Soil-Vehicle Studies Section. Field tests were conducted by personnel of the Soil-Vehicle Studies Section under the direct supervision of Mr. B. G. Schreiner. Messrs. R. P. Smith, C. E. Green, W. E. Willoughby, and S. M. Hodge of the Soil-Vehicle Studies Section contributed to the reduction and analysis of test data. This report and Appendix J were prepared by Mr. Schreiner. Appendix B was written by Miss M. E. Smith and Mr. T. R. Patin of the Mobility Fundamentals Section, Mobility Research Branch, WES. Appendix C was written by Mr. T. F. Czako of the Land Locomotion Division, Mobility Systems Laboratory, U. S. Army Tank-Automotive Command. This is Report 2 of a series entitled "Mobility Exercise A (MEXA) Field Test Program." The others are as follows: Report 1, "Summary"; Report 3, "Performance of MEXA and Three Military Vehicles in Lateral Obstacles"; Report 4, "Performance of MEXA and Three Military Vehicles in Vertical Obstacles"; and Report 5, "Performance of MEXA and Three Military Vehicles in Selected Natural Terrains." Directors of the WES during the conduct of this study and preparation of this report were COL ,John R. Oswalt, ,Jr. , CE, COL Levi Brown, CE, and COL Ernest D. Peixotto, CE. Technical Directors were Messrs. J. B. Tiffany and F. R. Brown.en_US
