Abstract: Tire deflection data were studied from 30 tests performed in the single-wheel test facilities with pneumatic tires at various inflation pressures operating in Yuma desert sand and mortar sand of various strengths. Plots are presented of a path of points on the center line of the tires relative to a moving and a fixed frame of reference. Representative plots are included to show the effect of slip, soil strength, and inflation pressure on the path and to compare the paths of a point on the towed and powered tire.
