Abstract:

A general computer program was written for the Electrodata 204 Datatron Digital Computer to calculate acceleration performance and related characteristics of tracked vehicles. Vehicle performance is determined at prescribed time intervals during acceleration from stand-still to maximum velocity. Other additional data supplied by this program are vehicle speed, distance traveled, time of travel, sprocket torque, tractive effort, rolling resistance, drawbar pull, and acceleration.
