Abstract:

This report includes an evaluation and assessment of range designs and Quality Assurance and Quality Control QAQC guidelines for Army training ranges. This project represents the initial efforts to review the current status of specific range design elements and construction QAQC issues related to selected civil engineering range elements. The research team reviewed the specific engineering elements of each design, including stationary and mover berms, roads and trails, low-water crossings, and battle positions defilades, firing points, and other offensive and defensive positions. The research team also reviewed current range designs and received input from range managers to focus on environmental compliance and reduced maintenance cost attributes. Recommendations for further evaluation and field studies are included.
