    • Hydrostatic drives in heavy equipment
      The benfits of using modern hydrostatic components in conjunction with shiftable gearboxes and computer controls include a large control range, precise control of traction effort and speed, and high efficiency.
    • Dynamic simulation of tracked vehicles
      Researchers from Purdue University, the Federal University of Vicosa, and Caterpillar, have developed a soil/track interface simulation program to model mechanical and hydraulic powertrains commonly found in tracked vehicles.
