Abstract: This report presents results of a study of the distribution of stresses imparted to soil by a moving, pneumatic-tired vehicle. This is the second in the series of reports entitled, Stresses Under Moving Vehicles; Report No. 1, A Pilot Study of WES Earth Pressure Cell Action in Comparatively Soft Soil, was published as Miscellaneous Paper No. 4-230. This study is considered a necessary first step in the evolvement of rational explanations of relations between loads and the stresses induced in the media over which they move, and is preliminary to the development of criteria for design of vehicles that will perform better on soft soils. The study is part of the vehicle mobility research program under Subproject 8-70-05-400, "Trafficability of Soils as Related to the Mobility of Military Vehicles," authorized by the Office, Chief of Engineers. Personnel of the U. S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station actively engaged in the study were Messrs. W. J. Turnbull, C. R.· Foster, S. J. Knight, A. B. Thompson, and M. D. Beasley, and Miss Mary E. Smith. This report was written by Mr. Thompson and Miss Smith. Directors of the Waterways Experiment Station during the conduct of the study and preparation of this report were Col. A. P. Rollins, Jr., CE, and Col. Edmund H. Lang, CE. Technical Director was Mr. J. B. Tiffany.
