The lateral climbing force of a crawler transporter is analyzed with the help of relevant theoretical formulas. Discrete element software and multi-body dynamics software were used to carry out coupling simulation for tracked vehicles, and orthogonal test was used to analyze the main and secondary factors affecting the lateral climbing of tracked vehicles. The results show that the main factors affecting the lateral climbing of tracked transporters are respectively the track gauge, the lateral deviation of the center of gravity and the vertical height of the center of gravity.
