MOBILITY PERFORMANCE OF SELECTED TRUCK/TRAILER COMBINATIONS IN THE HIMO WEST GERMANY STUDY AREA (TACV ADDENDUM)
This study evaluates the mobility performance of 15 truck/trailer candidates in the HIMO West Germany study area. The Army Mobility Model (AMM) was used to obtain on- and off-road mobility predictions in terms of speed profiles for each study vehicle for three surface conditions (dry, wet, and snow). The SWIMCRIT/WACROSS water-crossing model was used to obtain vehicle performance crossing linear features (water crossing). The HIMO methodology was used to establish mobility rating speed for the five tactical mobility levels (on-road, tactical support, tactical standard, tactical high, and high-high) in the HIMO West Germany study area. The study vehicles were then compared based on their mobility rating speeds for the three surface conditions at each tactical mobility level. The study vehicles were also compared based on their percent NOGO on trails and off-road. (Author)
