Abstract : The purpose of this study was to develop a method of calculating physical work rate for the type and duration of tasks of soldier performance while in the field. A nomagraph was developed to assist modelers with the simulation of task performance. A literature search revealed over 24 different models. Two of these were selected for further study. These models can be used for detailed analysis of specific tasks. For general data gathering, the method presented in this study presents an adequate representation of physical work performed by soldiers.
