Plot Comments

  • This is an example of the variation in soil stress across the face of the Tire tread.
  • The plots where the vehicle was off center show a higher soil stress directly under the rollers of the track unit. 
  • When comparing this unit with E47 you would expect and similar profile with a slightly lower soil pressure for this machine since it is overall less weight. However, this unit was tested of a different location which highlights the dependence on the soil profile to carry the load. The location where E47 was tested may have had a slightly wetter soil profile which increase the stress in the soil.
