Trafficability of Soils: Eighteenth Supplement, Development of Revised Mobility Index Formula for Self-Propelled Wheeled Vehicles in Fine-Grained Soils

Description: The main purposes of this study were to (a) obtain adequate test data to determine experimentally the vehicle cone index (VCI) for 50 passes for vehicles mounted with nonconventional tires and (b) use results of the field tests to develop a revised mobility index (MI) formula for self-propelled wheeled vehicles.

Acoustic Flowmeter Prototype Evaluation Tests

Description: Summary: "Prototype tests of an acoustic flowmeter system were made in a 24-ftdiam power penstock at Oahe Dam to evaluate the system prior to permanent installation in the outlet works at Summersville Dam. Comparative discharge measurements included acoustic, penstock pressure-momentum (Gibson), turbine model test ratings, scroll-case pressure differential (Winter-Kennedy flowmeter), and surge tank volume changes. The acoustic flowmeter measurements were very consistent and many of the comparisons were within 1%. The location of the measuring section for a single-path acoustic flowmeter must be selected to give a known or measurable relation between the flow pattern of the whole section and that along the acoustic path" (p. xi).
