VIRTUAL ROPS TESTING ON SUSPENDED AGRICULTURAL TRACTOR
Rekem J., Prokop A., Zajac R., Rehak K.
pages 436 - 439, full text

This paper is devoted to the agricultural tractor's rollover protective structure. The ROPS Code 4 testing procedure for small-sized suspended tractor has to be performed by technical experiment, but numerical simulation can significantly affect the number of testing. For that reason, the whole procedure is simulated by using finite element method software Ansys. A complex simulation contains models of rubber silent blocks and spring-damper suspension units. The protective structure is accepted for laboratory tests and ways of optimization or possible critical regions are proposed. Based on the results, presented approach has good correlation with technical experiment, thus can be used as powerful tool in the development phase.
