Abstract

In this paper, we simulate the operation of a spading machine on three soil types; easy to work, medium to work and heavy, using a previously validated SimuLink model of an MSS-1.40M spading machine. We determine the forces during spading. We explore the physical and mechanical properties of the soil that play a role in the spading process. By simulation of the spading process with the MSS-1.40M spading machine, we determine the torque on the drive shaft and the required mechanical work on the three soil types.
