Abstract
A METHOD TO PREDICT THE PERFORMANCE OF HEAVY WHEELED OR TRACKED GROUND VEHICLES IS PROPOSED. THE STEPS FOR DEVELOPING THESE PREDICTION TECHNIQUES ARE 1) ESTIMATES OF LOADS AND TRACK OR TIRE CONFIGURATION, 2) DEFINITION OF THE SOIL PROPERTIES IN PARTICULAR THE SHEAR STRENGTH, 3) NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF THE VEHICLE-SOIL INTERACTION USING A FINITE DIFFERENCE COMPUTER CODE FROM WHICH THE SOIL DEFORMATION AND HENCE MOBILITY RESISTANCE IS OBTAINED, 4) DEVELOPMENT OF A SET OF SIMPLIFIED PREDICTIVE EQUATIONS FOR MOBILITY RESISTANCE, 5) VERIFICATION OF METHOD BY COMPARING RESULTS WITH EXISTING EXPERIMENTS, AND 6) IMPLEMENTATION OF PREDICTIVE EQUATIONS IN A PROBABILISTIC ASSESSMENT CODE FROM WHICH THE MOST LIKELY RESULTS, PROBABILITY OF OCCURRENCE, UNCERTAINTIES, AND SENSITIVITIES CAN BE OBTAINED.
