RESPONSE OF VARIOUS SOIL STRENGTH INDICES TO CHANGING WATER CONTENT

Various soil strength parameters were measured in the laboratory using a bevameter and a recording soil cone penetrometer. Measurements were made at various levels of soil bulk density and water content. Results are discussed in terms of similar published analyses. Two dissimilar methods of predicting vehicular tractive performance are compared and evaluated in terms of potential utility with respect to prediction of soil trafficability.
