Optimizing tractive performance
Canadian researchers correlate analytical predictions and
experimental data to determine that the proper matching of front-
and rear-tire sizes, aswell as careful control of inflation
pressure and normal load of the tires, is necessary to achieve
optimum tractive performance of four-wheel-drive tractors.
Actively suspending off-road vehicles
The University of Texas Center for Electromechanics evaluated a
retrofit electromechanical active suspension that s hows promise of
improved cross-country mobility for military vehicles.
