Abstract:

A number of previous research studies have been performed with the objective of developing a model to predict the performance and efficiency of tracks on ground terrain. For proper modelling, several approaches documented in the literature have been used on 1 Strip footing idealization of the track contact area with elastic stress distribution in the soil 2 Energy dissipation within the failed soil mass and 3 Energy conservation considerations for the trackgrouser-soil system.
