Abstract
  • The principles of mobility are applied to the forest setting to simulate the movement of logs with a rubber tired-skidder. A computer program was written to perform the analysis . Vehicle-terrain and logterrain interactions are the resistances which must be overcome by the available vehicle power. The rate at which these resistances can be overcome is potential vehicle speed. Vehicle speed and turn weight then define productivity. The "mobility model' is then used to evaluate variable relationships and identify optimum vehicle horsepowers, turn weights, and skid trail slopes. A user oriented program is written with documentation for the Hewlett Packard Model 9830 desktop computer.
