Abstract
To examine the feasibility of using the pressure-sinkage data obtained using a Rammsonde as input to the computer simulation model NTVPM-85, developed by Vehicle Systems Development Corporation (VSDC), for predicting tracked vehicle performance over snow, a series of measurements of the pressure-sinkage relationships of fresh and preconditioned snow was made using a Rammsonde and a bevameter. In addition, the shear strength of the snow was also measured using a bevameter shear device and a hand-held shear device. This report describes the Terrain Data Analysis Software (TDAS) developed by VSDC for processing experimental data obtained using the Rammsonde, the bevameter and the hand-held shear device. The instructions for the operation of the TDAS and for the preparation of input data files are given. Sample output from the TDAS is also presented.
