Abstract:

A two-dimensional, vertical-plane, computer simulation model describing the dynamics of a wheeled vehicle exiting from the riverine environment is presented. The model includes the effects of soft soil, suspensions, buoyancy, drive train characteristics and the inertial reactions of the unsprung masses. The body is modeled as a composite of rectangular sections the tires are rigid. The stream bottom and bank surface can be any specified arbitrary geometry their soil properties are specified by the land locomotion soil value system.
