A laboratory study was undertaken upon two clays, London clay and Cheshire clay, at a range of typical moisture contents encountered in the UK. Soil-rubber and soil-soil shear tests were undertaken using a direct shear box. The results of these tests are related to work undertaken on soil-rubber wheel shear using a simple experimental test facility in which the soil was moved into the instrumented wheel. Conclusions have been drawn regarding the mobility characteristics of wheels on London clay and the leaner Cheshire clay. (TRRL)
