Abstract : Engineer design tests were performed on a dust-control system, i.e. materials and prototype emplacement equipment. The performance of the dust-control material exceeded the criteria of the currently existent Qualitative Materiel Requirement. The liquid distributor for dust control described herein performed well on-road, off-road, and during spraying operations. Design changes will be required in order to meet the vehicle weight requirement and to improve the maintainability of the vehicle. Based on the results of the tests reported herein, it is concluded that the dust-control system is suitable for engineering tests/expanded service tests. (Modified author abstract)
