The role of robotics mobility is essential in the world of research because it allows humans to perform jobs that are dull, dirty, or dangerous without being physically present. A typical robot environment is one that is smooth and predictable. Screw-powered vehicles (SPV's) have commonly been used in these predictable environment situations such as terrestrial applications like mud and snow. However, a gap remains in SPV's traversing complex environments, particularly debris and granular material. The goal is to study the characteristics of how a SPV might move and generate force in such a granular environment for Earth and space. In our study, the chosen granular environment is soda-lime glass beads for easy characterization. This study with glass beads focuses on two separate approaches. The first approach is using a single screw rotating while the apparatus remains static and analyzing the forces that impact the screw. The second approach includes using a full body craft with two double helix screws and analyzing the translational velocity of the craft. This study presents both experimental and computational results using simulations with Multi-Body Dynamics (MBD) and Discrete Element Method (DEM) software packages to investigate the trends of SPV's in a granular environment.
