Researches of Influence of Tires Types on Military Trucks Mobility 2007-01-4192
The paper includes theoretical basis of the terrain-tire interaction model and results of simulation research of driving force dependent on tire types, their characteristics and ground characteristic as well. Mathematical model of military truck has been built using MBS software DADS. The model has been validated on deformable ground using tires with well known characteristics. In conclusions authors described obtained results and possibilities of applying of developed model for analyzing military trucks dynamics and mobility on different kind of terrain with different kind of tires.
