Abstract:

The simple, numerical model was developed, as an aid to vehicle design, to predict changes in the dry bulk density of a soil due to the passage of a wheel, or wheels, over the soil surface. The model uses Soehnes solutions to estimate stress increases, and empirical isotropic changes below a wheel. Accurate predictions of final dry bulk density for a layered soil require a more rigorous model and reliable data for the soil under consideration.
