Sand and Dust Testing of Wheeled and Tracked Vehicles and Stationary Equipment
YUMA PROVING GROUND AZ
Pagination or Media Count:
This TOP describes procedures for evaluating effects of sand and dust exposure on automotive systems or components of wheeled and tracked vehicles when operated in a dry off-road environment. Also included are procedures for testing stationary equipment that may be sited in a dusty environment. This method is particularly appropriate for dry regions environmental testing, since large amounts of dust become airborne due to wheel and track disturbance of the dry sand, silt, and clay soil that is characteristic of dry regions.
