Abstract : In support of the recent trials of 2 1/2 ton trucks at C.F.B. Petawawa, the vehicle mobility section of DND/DREO has carried out a characterization of soils in terms of certain physical and mechanical properties. The current report is preliminary and consists of: profiles of soil humidity obtained by fast neutron probe; and determinations of soil shear strength and bearing capacity using the bevameter, the McGill vane-cone penetrometer and the WES cone. Soil test results from each vehicle trial site are discussed with a view to possible future correlation with vehicle mobility parameters, terrain trafficability and vehicle manoeuverability.
