Abstract:

An interim summary research and engineering studies being conducted in the area of off-road mobility is presented. These studies have been initiated as part of a long-term plan which has the objective of augmenting knowledge and methods available to military planning, engineering, and field personnel for purposes of improving ground mobility. The activities dealt with embrace the modeling of the human-vehicle-environment system and detailed technical studies of soil mechanics, vehicle-terrain interactions, human factors and environmental factors organic to the system. These technical studies are expected to provide inputs for mobility prediction and evaluation and form the basis for knowledgeable assessment of off-road mobility research.
