Abstract:

This report is a users guide for the computer program TVSTEER, which predicts the steering performance of high-mobilityagility tracked vehicles in environments ranging from very soft soils to hard surfaces. In addition to a listing of the program Appendix A, the report contains a glossary of the important variable names Appendix B, typical sets of input and output data, a brief flowchart, and 10 sample runs. Appendix C describes a field direct shear device for use in measuring those engineering properties of soil which are required by the program TVSTEER. Appendix D is a notation.
