The scientific knowledge necessary for engineers to design mobility characteristics into a vehicle does not exist. In their attempts to fill this need, mobility engineers have failed to apply basic scientific methods and principles in a consistent manner. Some of the shortcomings evident in mobility research methods are pointed out. New knowledge obtained from mobility-oriented studies not in progress at the U. S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station is presented to illustrate the importance of basic scientific studies.
