Abstract : After having finished the nonlinear finite element analysis of the sands under the tracked vehicle by a nonlinear finite element analysis program called NFAP, A modified Duncan model based on soil triaxial testing was suggested. The results of the experiment and the values predicted are well coincidence. The studies show that the grouser has important effect for the thrust on sands. (Author)
