Abstract : The knowledge of the dynamic interaction between track and soil is important to analyze high speed vehicles with flexible track. This paper describes a possible method for the measurement of this interaction. Force- and displacement-sensors are fixed in and on the track to measure longitudinal-, transversal- and normal-load at one track-shoe, sinkeage of this track-shoe and the longitudinal- and transversal slip of this track shoe.
