Abstract:

The lug of a rigid lugged wheel for the paddy-field tractor is the basic element to interact with soil. The lug angle has significant effect on the tractive performance of a rigid lugged wheel in rice field. This paper analyses the interaction process between lug and soil. A calculating method of soil reaction on a single lug based on the equation of passive pressure in two dimensional soil failure is presented. It is shown that there is a good agreement between the measured and predicted pull and lift forces developed by a single lug within the test range.
