Abstract:

A total of 709 tests performed with single pneumatic tires in Yuma desert sand placed in movable sand bins in the laboratory are analyzed. Basic plots are presented to show the correlations obtained between individual variables. Representative cross plots are included to show the effects of tire width and diameter and to illustrate the relative effectiveness of the various tires tested. Initial steps in the development of a numeric that will define a single relation between dependent and independent variables for all tires and test conditions are reported.
