Abstract:

The procedure described in the paper permits rapid survey of entire landing sites by use of any available standard ground vehicle. Specifically, the process is one of selecting a standard vehicle, such as a 2-12-ton cargo truck, traversing a potential landing area, and noting the rutting. From the degree of rutting, a direct projection of allowable operations of any aircraft can be readily determined. Author
