This report provides a prototype computer program for the design of roads in an Amphibious Operations Area for the Marine Amphibious Force. The report is divided into two sections; the State of the Art Research, and the Road Design Program Development. The State of the Art section of this research provides a background of military construction management programs developed for microprocessors. These are reviewed in the first five chapters: OVERVIEW, ARMY PROGRAMS, NAVY PROGRAMS, MARINE CORPS PROGRAMS, and GEORGIA TECH PROGRAMS. The State of the Art in relation to this research problem is the Road Design Program of LCDR R. R. Setzekorn The development of a Road Design computer program is the subject of the final two chapters: PROGRAM DESIGN and CONCLUSIONS. Here the design of a road is broken down into eight functional stages; Horizontal Alignment, Superelevation, Soils, Vertical Alignment, Cross Section, Intersection Points, Cross Sectional Area, and Mass Balance. These stages are, for the most part, based on procedures developed in Army Technical Manuals. However, some design methods from Surveying , by Harry Bouchard, et . al . , and Highway Engineering He, by Paul H. Wright and Radnor J. Paquette; are also used. The flow charts and the final prototype computer program, Fortran Interactive Road Design (FIRD), were developed by the author of this report. Input to this program is interactive with the user, and requires the use of the user's manual. Output is received after completion of each of the eight functional design stages.
