Abstract:

The report describes twenty-four design concepts for a runway foamer-resupply vehicle and the methods used to evaluate and compare them with regard to suitability, weight, procurement cost, probable acceleration and top speed performance, and off-pavement mobility. The major design parameters applicable to such dual-purpose vehicles are identified and discussed. Illustrations are included for each major concept or concept group. Types of foam distribution systems are discussed and methods for foam removal are mentioned. The report does not identify an optimum design configuration for a runway foamer-resupply vehicle. It is intended, rather, to provide an indication of the choices available with regard to selecting a configuration for such a vehicle.
