Abstract:

A semiempiric, dimensionless load coefficient is developed from extensive field and laboratory data on the performance of pneumatic tires in dry sands. The coefficient appears to collapse these diverse data to a useful degree. The physical meaning of the numeric is discussed, and its relation to some earlier work is shown. A preliminary consolidation of the data using the final form of the numeric is presented.
