Experiments to measure the vertical dynamic loading forces acting on the track rollers of a half-tracked tractor were conducted by using strain gauges. In addition, a driving simulation model was constructed to predict the vertical dynamic loading forces acting on the track rollers as the tractor ran on an asphalt road surface. A twodimensional model to evaluate the vibration characteristics of the half-tracked tractor is discussed. It was modified and improved by considering the linear and nonlinear interactions of the rubber crawler with the track roller as well as the roller's location arrangement.
