The purpose of the study was to determine the degree of correlation of vibration-induced failure incidents between field tests at Aberdeen Proving Ground APG and a laboratory simulation test of the 1 14-Ton XM705 Truck. Six trucks were field tested at APG. An accelerated laboratory simulation test was developed from operating field data recorded on magnetic tape at APG. A 245-hour laboratory vehicle shake test was run on one vehicle. A study was made to determine the degree of correlation between the field tests and laboratory test.
