Abstract
This work was to provide geotechnical support for the mechanical neutralization trials of heavy mine rollers, soil placement, soil sampling and testing were investigated. A soil bin was constructed and instrumented to obtain applied surface load from a loading plate or wheel, soil stress, surface displacement, and landmine simulator pressure plate force and displacement. Over fifty tests were conducted on either DRDC Prairie Soil or Gravel to evaluate soil stress gauges and to gain insight into the important physical mechanisms of wheel loading and subsequent soil and buried landmine response.
