Abstract:

The study is basically a determination of the types of equipment required for the operation of an automotive research and investigation laboratory. It serves as a basis for the design of a laboratory for the analysis of automotive systems employed by the United States Army. The facility is designed to analyze six distinct systems power plant system, tire system, transmission system, steering system, brake system, and fuel system. System definition and equipment recommendations for the selected systems are presented in Chapter 3 of the paper. Equipment recommendations for a Materials Laboratory used in the analysis of the selected systems are presented in Appendix I. Appendices 2 and 3 are studies of the size and cost of the proposed facility. Author
