Abstract: The study reported herein was performed as part of the Corps of Engineers Project 8-70-05-100, "Mobility of the Army," Subproject 8-70-05-101, "Trafficability of Soils as Related to the Mobility of Military Vehicles." The study was conducted at the Waterways Experiment Station under the supervision of Messrs. W. J. Turnbull, C. R. Foster, A. A. Maxwell, and S. J. Knight, by personnel of the Army Mobility Research Center, Soils Division. Engineer in charge of the tests was Mr. A. B. Thompson, assisted by Messrs. M. D. Beasley and C. A. Blackmon, engineering aides. Mr. John J. Loviza of the WES machine shop assisted in the design and construction of the test penetrometer and in the mechanical features of the testing program. This report was written by Mr. Knight assisted by Mr. Blackmon who performed the major portion of the data analyses. Dr. A. A. Warlam, consultant, contributed greatly to the study by his suggestions for conduct of the tests, explanation of the mechanics principles involved, analysis of the data, and review of the report. The report was also reviewed prior to publication by Mr. C. E. Molineux of the Air Force Cambridge Research Center.
