Design and Development of a Segmented Rubber Tracked Vehicle for Sepang Peat Terrain in Malaysia

This paper describes the design and development of a new segmented rubber tracked vehicle for peat terrain in Malaysia. A new mathematical model for peat terrain, used to determine the forces at the ground contact portions of the track element of front idler-terrain, intermediate roadwheels-terrain, and rear sprocket-terrain interfaces is developed. Simulated performance results, such as vehicle average motion resistance coefficient of 6.8–7.9%, drawbar pull coefficient of 25–47%, and tractive efficiency of 74–77% for vehicle slippage of 5–20% indicate the vehicle meets peat terrain field requirements with its optimal power consumption.
