Abstract:

Two test courses FKDC and FKNC at Fort Knox, Kentucky, totaling approximately 37.4 miles of roads and trails that had been used for conducting vehicle tests with Armored Reconnaissance Scout Vehicles ARSVs and comparable vehicles, were mapped by techniques developed by the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station. The factors mapped were soil type, soil strength, topographic slope, obstacles, surface roughness, and visibility. Standing vegetation was not present on any of the trails. The study also included a limited comparison of the two test courses FKDC and FKNC with other Fort Knox terrains FK1, FK2 and West Germany terrain WGT.
