Abstract:

This report contains an analysis of standard and advanced terrain data acquisition techniques for area mobility evaluations. In detail, generic terrain descriptors for FRG terrain conditions were investigated for a total of 35 cell areas. Relations among soil dynamic parameters and conventional mobility index numbers were analyzed for a total of 23 sites. Relationship between cone index field data and computer model data was investigated for a total of 19 sites. A total of 35 terrain sample cells of 10x10 km quadrangle size were selected by BattelleWES within the FRG. These cells were identifying the most, medium and least representatives of a particular generic region which was determined by these factors landform-topography Natick slopes average temperatureJanuary and mean value of annual rainfall. The cell characteristics were based on the following terrain factors USCS soil type agricultural land use forest type vegetation cover and geology rock type.
