A calculation method for estimating the turning resistance of the tracked vehicles is proposed. Formerly, the turning resistance of the tracked vehicles was computed by the frictional coefficient between track shoes and soils. But, it is satisfactory to consider that the turning resistance consists of the cohesional resistance under face of the track shoes, and the bulldozing resistance developed by the side shoes of the sinked track shoes. Experimental values conducted by using models approximately agreed with the calculation results according to the equation of bulldozing resistance moments.
