Abstract: The study reported herein was conducted by the U. S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES) in furtherance of Department of the Army Research and Development Project 1T0621C3A046, "Trafficability and Mobility Research," Task 02, "Surface Mobility." This project is under the sponsorship and guidance of the Research, Development, and Engineering Directorate, U. S. Army Materiel Command. Field tests were performed intermittently over a three-year period (1967-1969) by personnel of the Vehicle Studies Branch (VSB), Mobility and Environmental (M&E) Division, under the direction of Messrs. B. G. Schreiner and J. H. Robinson. The paper was prepared by Mr. E. S. Rush. Personnel of the M&E Division in general supervisory capacity were Messrs. W. G. Shockley and S. J. Knight, Chief and Assistant Chief, respectively, of the division, A. A. Rula, Chief, VSB, and E. S. Rush, Engineer, VSB. Directors of the WES during the test program and preparation of this paper were COL John R. Oswalt, Jr., CE, COL Levi A. Brown, CE, and COL Ernest D. Peixotto. Technical Directors were Messrs. J. B. Tiffany and F. R. Brown. This paper was presented by Mr. Rush at Meeting of Off-Road Mobility Symposium, 3-li November 1970, Los Angeles, Calif., sponsored by International Society for Terrain Vehicle Systems and Applied Mechanics Laboratory, TRW Systems Group.
