Abstract:

The report presents the AMC 71 Mobility Model, a comprehensive computerized simulation of the interaction of a vehicle, a terrain and an operator. This model represents existing technology as of 1971 for predicting the performance of wheeled or tracked vehicles across any type of terrain. While the model involves several simplifying assumptions necessitated either by lack of more complete information or by practical limitations on complexity and computer capacity, when used judiciously, it is a useful tool for ground mobility analysis even in its present form.
