Thus, the nature of the original soil being cohesive tends to be emerging as more frictional soil due to marble powder.
Finally once the model accuracy has been established, the next step will be the incorporation of the model into a Multi Body Simulation (MBS) software, where further investigation on the dynamic behavior of an off-road vehicle rolling on various types of cohesive and frictional soils will be performed.
