It should be highlighted that use of the aforementioned equations, including their inherent limitations such as, the inability to predict the additional sinkage caused by the slipping conditions of the wheel, may lead to large errors and unrealistic response of the rolling wheel.
To test this hypothesis, we performed plate sinkage test (PST) and confined compression test (CCT) in which part of samples of remoulded fine and coarse textured soils were subjected to five compression cycles and the resulting changes in [[sigma].
For our purposes it is enough to note the variables it is derived from: vertical load W, linear speed V, torque T, wheel angular speed [omega] and sinkage z.

The Pantanal region possesses datum levels ranging from 80 m to 150 m and was formed by the sinkage of a large area, which occurred simultaneously with the emergence of the Andes Mountain Range (Silva, 1984).
As the agricultural soil is exposed to multiple loadings of the same magnitude in this situation, it is valuable to predict soil sinkage by multiple loadings so as to utilize the tractor power effectively with minimum compaction effects.
