SCALE MODELS FOUND GOOD ROUTE TO SOIL

The use of scale models is discussed, and it is observed that they are well suited to basic studies of soil-machine relationships, and to comparative tests of configurations and operating conditions. Scale-model testing can afford greater control over test conditions, and experience proves it is feasible to make scale models of earth-moving equipment to yield reliable data for application to practical earth-moving. Correctly set up and operated model earthmoving machines have proved superior to full-scale equipment for observing basic soil phenomena. Scale-model testing for the scraper is outlined.
