Abstract
The report outlines the basic features of a computer simulation model, known as the Nepean Tracked Vehicle Performance Model (NTVPM-85), developed by Vehicle Systems Development Corporation, Nepean, Ontario, Canada. NTVPM-85 is intended for parametric analysis of tracked vehicle performance over unprepared terrain. It takes into account all major design parameters of the vehicle as well as terrain characteristics. The theoretical basis for NTVPM-85 and its experimental validation are presented. The capabilities and features of NTVPM-85 are compared with those of some of the existing methods for predicting tracked vehicle performance. Examples of the applications of NTVPM-85 to parametric evaluation of tracked vehicle designs are also given.
