Toward Establishing a Comprehensive Pressure-sinkage Model for Small Diameter Wheels on Deformable Terrains

Abstract

Traditional terramechanics theorems utilise pressure-sinkage models based on the assumption that the contact area between a tyre and soil can be approximated as a flat plate. Examples include work by Bekker, Reece, and Ishigami. Recently, the authors have demonstrated that 1) this approximation does not hold for wheels with a diameter less than… (More)
