Abstract : In this paper, the producing process of the driving wheel thrust of paddy field tractor is analyzed through experiments made in a soil bin. In essence, it is a process in which the wheel lugs are moved against the soil so that the soil in the neighborhood of contact surface is compressed and sheared. The methods for predicting the driving wheel thrust and the lug motion trajectory of paddy field tractor are proposed. The predicted values of the thrust are compared with those obtained through experiments. It shows that the predicted thrust agrees fairly satisfactorily with the measured results. (Author)
