Sample text

Adolphe Kegresse, a Frenchman, employed as a mechanic at the Russian Imperial garage, was one of the first persons to invent and use the half-track drive for automobiles of the Russian Emperor. His invention was intended for improving the mobility of vehicles on snow-covered roads and unpaved stretches of land. Kegresse patented this invention in 1912. Following Kegresse’s caterpillar drive design, a composite rubber-metal caterpillar track, that was nicknamed ‘‘overall,’’ was designed in the United States.

This was remedied by equipping the driving wheels with an additional device, consisting of a set of pushers and detents—‘‘claws’’. 2 presents another vehicle of a similar design of the claws. Performing reciprocating motion were a pair of claws hinged on rods that became alternately coupled with the road surface and assisted in rotating the driving wheels of the carriage without perceptible skidding. 3a). Without exception, all the wheels in Brunton’s locomotive were driven (no torque applied), and functioned as a support structure.

All this was indeed true under good road conditions. However, when a car equipped with tires having shallow grooves was called upon to travel under poor terrain conditions (sandy, swampy terrain), over wet dirt roads, and also over snow and ice encrusted roads, its wheels started spinning and the car completely lost its ability to travel. This forced car manufacturers and tire engineers to find a way to improve the mobility of their products. 13). The latter were termed halftrack drives. The others—tire engineers—focused on improving the grooving pattern and the tire tread design.
