Tracked Vehicles — Terrain Damage and Economy 800953

Terrain Damage by tracked vehicles, due to rut making and ground compaction, also results in higher locomotive resistance which lowers fuel economy. Both the damage and the economy may be controlled by proper design, and by the correct use of a right vehicle. To this end, methods of land locomotion mechanics are useful as described in this paper. The application of these methods also suggests some ideas that appear promising for a further study.
