This is particularly relevant to the latter which operate in a wide range of severe
terrains. The focus for such studies should be on the evaluation of the vehicle
and operating environment as one interconnected system. Thus, a good
understanding of soil mechanics is needed, as well as of the running gear of the
vehicle. The first part of the section is dedicated to the description of the indoor
testing facility developed in the Advanced Vehicle Dynamics Laboratory (AVDL)
at Virginia Tech.
