Environmental Effects on the Design of Engineer Construction Equipment 680096

An analytical technique has been developed which uses operational and physical environmental factors as design criteria for earthmoving equipment. A computer program that employs these factors is used in the design optimization of an integrated family of military construction equipment. Total environmental factors considered include: soils, vegetation, climate, transport, deployment, operation, service, supply, etc. Analytical design studies already conducted have produced a hypothetical equipment system that performs its mission at substantially less cost than existing military equipment systems.
