Abstract:

Experimental and analytical tests of drawbarpull versus track slippage were conducted on four vehicles capable of over-snow operation for the purpose of gaining information to establish design criteria for a 12 ton cargo carrier. Conclusions drawn from the test results indicate that the vehicle form is most important in oversnow operation and that the articulated form of vehicle along with other pertinent design features offers the most promising direction for an increase in overall vehicle mobility.
