Abstract : A digital computer program called VEH was written to expedite the analysis and design of vehicles. Written specifically for use in the USAMERDC electric vehicle program, it is equally applicable to mechanical vehicles. The program is written in Fortran IV on punched cards and has one main program and five subroutines. By specifying the appropriate vehicle parameters, the program will provide a definition table, horsepower-versus-speed tables, acceleration and deceleration data, and a table that will provide HP and torque requirements as functions of slope, speed, payload, and surface type.
