Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)
Description: A computer program for simulating harvesting operations is presented. Written in FORTRAN IV, the program contains subroutines that were developed for Appalachian logging conditions. However, with appropriate modifications, the simulator would be applicable for most logging operations and locations. The details of model development and its methodology are presented, along with generalized flow charts. Each component of the simulator (felling, skidding, etc.) is discussed individually. Input requirements and program output are presented in detail with the aid of information for an example logging operation.
