Our poor prediction capability on the sinkage and rolling resistance of wheels originates in the unreliable description of soil properties and the soil-wheel interaction. Some improvements in both have shown that the theoretical calculations may give results comparable with experimental observations. To determine soil properties, the “two wheel measuring method” is suggested. Further improvement possibilities have also been outlined.
