Pagination or Media Count:
The report presents a method of rapidly assessing the ability of an area to support aircraft operations. The method involves no special equipment or specially trained personnel, but is based on the interrelation of the response of ground surfaces of various strengths to vehicular and aircraft traffic. Data that allow the forecasting of the ability of an area to support aircraft traffic are tabulated herein. This ability is based on the rut depth occurring in a soil after one pass of a standard military vehicle.
