The scientific knowledge necessary for engineers to design mobility characteristics into a vehicle does not exist. In their attempts to fill this need, mobility engineers have failed to apply basic scientific methods and principles in a consistent manner. Some of the shortcomings evident in mobility research methods are pointed out. New knowledge obtained from mobility oriented studies now in progress at the U. S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station is presented to illustrate the importance of basic scientific studies.
