Abstract:

Road profiles available for digital terrain simulation at TARADCOM are cataloged. The terrain simulation program for the PACER 100EAI 580 Hybrid computer system is described. The terrain simulation program was developed to better utilize the hybrid computing system when it is required to run several vehicles over known terrains at different speeds for varying lengths of time. The operator can interactively setup the test environment or feed in a prepared paper tape. Terrains are stored on disks and vary from profiles of actual test courses to synthesized forcing functions. Development and operation of the program are described and possible future refinements are explored.
