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.

A catalog of ideas for underground yield determination

Description: Because of the persistent problem of convenient determination of underground yield, Certain `electromagnetically` oriented ideas in this area are summarized. They all require much more detailed study and evaluation, although one or two of them are inexpensive enough to perhaps warrant an empirical test. Methods discussed are: Vertical sounding of the Ionosphere; The electromagnetic `Magnetic Bubble` scheme; Non-resonant scattering; Resonant scattering; and The gravitational pulse.

An Analytical Model for Predicting Cross-Country Vehicle Performance, Appendix B: Vehicle Performance in Lateral and Longitudinal Obstacles (Vegetation), Volume 1: Lateral Obstacles

Description: First part of an appendix that accompanies a study meant to develop a model for predicting the cross-country performance of military vehicles in various conditions. This volume describes a segment of tests to determine the ability of vehicles to negotiate lateral obstacles (e.g., trees, boulders, holes, mounds, etc.).

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).

TOTAL RADIATION-INDUCED GENETIC DAMAGE IN ENTIRE GENOMES OF DROSOPHILA MELANOGASTER. Technical Progress Report.

Description: Drosophila melanogaster adults are irradiated and then mated to flies containing genetic markers and/or crossover suppressors in all chromosomes. Appropriate genetic schemes are followed to obtain balanced stocks of entire treated genomes. Each chromosome of each genome is observed for visibles, lethals, detrimentals and sterility factors. Tests are made for translocations involving any combination of chromosomes. All chromosomes of each genome are examined cytologically for possible deficiencies, inversions, transpositions, etc. and to determine the break points of the translocations. It is believed that a study such as this will give us a far better idea of the overall magnitude of radiation-induced genetic damage and a better insight into the nature of this damage, expecially the interĀ­-relationships between the different kinds of genetic alterations, than has heretofore been possible with studies of selected types of damage in selected chromosomes or loci.
