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 co-incidence. The studies show that the grouser has important effect for the thrust on sands. (Author)
