Abstract:

A first-generation, quantitative description of straight-line track pull performance in a desert sand was sought by laboratory tests of a model track. Of 16 variables selected to provide a comprehensive description of the track-sand system, analysis of three Plackett-Burman statistical test designs showed four to merit initial study.
