- The dust problem and fender design for the LRV were studied under reduced gravity with a lunar soil simulant. The test equipment, soil characteristics of the lunar soil simulant, and the test procedures are described. It is concluded: (1) The fender plus flap design is adequate. (2) Vacuum conditions tend to eliminate or reduce suspended dust clouds. (3) Reduced gravity conditions tend to increase the dust problems. (4) Slow starting speeds are necessary to minimize slip and reduce initial dust generation.
