Abstract
  • SkidPC 2000, written in Visual Basic Version 6.0, is an updated version of the 1987 DOS program that calculates the mobility and productivity of ground-based logging vehicles over a ground profile. As in the original program, the user enters the vehicle and operational conditions and the program will calculate the vehicle speed, productivity, and other aspects of the vehicle, log, and soil interaction. New features have been added to the program and there has been a complete revision of the program’s user interface. Additions to the program include the ability to model sixwheeled forwarders and clambunk skidders, and the ability to simulate wheel and track rutting. Throughout the updating of the program, small errors in the original version were corrected and the user interface was restructured and streamlined to utilize the features of the Microsoft Windows environment. SkidPC 2000 is an updated tool for operations planners, loggers, foresters, students, equipment salespeople, and others to estimate productivity, ground pressure, velocity, and wheel or track slip. This program can be used to examine relative changes in operational performance to vehicle configuration, vehicle loading, and terrain conditions.
