Mathematical modelling of traction resistance of the improved opener of grain seeder
BIO Web of Conferences
The object of the study is a double disc coulter with a pressure plate. The aim of the research was to simulate the operation of the double disc coulter using a grain seed drill as an example. Analytical dependencies for determining the traction resistance of the improved coulter are presented. The method of calculating the drag resistance of a double disc coulter with an original pressure plate installed on it is given. The components of the traction resistance balance have been determined and
... been determined and the dependence on the sowing depth has been established. 3D graphical dependences of the traction resistance of serial and advanced coulters on the speed and depth of its movement have been constructed based on the results of calculations. The main influence is the placement depth. Speed of movement of the seeder in the considered interval of its values does not render essential influence on traction resistance. Installation of an additional pressure plate increases traction resistance to 5 %.
