Record #125791:

Effect of soil thaw on off-road vehicle traction / Sally A. Shoop.

Title: Effect of soil thaw on off-road vehicle traction / Sally A. Shoop.
Author(s): Shoop, Sally A.
Date: 1993.
Publisher: Wushan, Guangzhou: South China University of Technology Press
In: Permafrost. Sixth International Conference. Proceedings (Vol. 1), July 5-9, 1993, Beijing China. (1993.),
Abstract: Instrumented vehicle was used to measure traction on various thawing conditions of frost-susceptible silty sand in large test basin where temperature and moisture conditions were controlled. Traction decreases considerably when water content of thawed layer is above liquid limit of soil. Traction also decreases as thaw depth increases until critical depth is attained, beyond which no further traction is lost. For dry and intermdiate water contents, trafficking increases obtainable traction, but for wet soils, it increases traction only if it creates favourable rut geometry.
