Prediction of tractor performance has been a major focus for many researchers over the last twenty years. Several empirically-based equations have been proposed and accepted by many engineers in the profession. The most noted of these is the Wismer and Luth theory (1974). They used dimensional analysis that resulted in an equation relating tire performance to slip, tire dimensions, tire load and soil strength.
