Abstract

This study concludes that, from the soil compaction point of view, using tracks does not confer an advantage, because of irregular contact pressure induced by the roller presence and the overall higher load of the track system. Conversely, tyres distribute uniformly the load on all the contact area and induce overall less stress on the soil.
