Agricultural, construction, and mining field conditions are amongst the hardest you can encounter, such as extreme temperatures, moisture, mud and dust, and high shock and vibration levels that pose challenges on any equipment. This requires innovative tools and solutions for field data acquisition and load data analysis to produce reliable machines.
This Simcenter white paper describes how to perform durability testing campaigns of heavy equipment by securing that every activity or step is tuned and optimized for testing productivity while maintaining the same high-level quality.
Off-Road machine durability testing
A tuned and optimized off-road machine durability testing campaign of heavy equipment is comprised of a set of different activities:
Instrumentation of the machine
Need to add force cells and pressure sensors
Defining the channel setup in the acquisition software
Executing maneuvers on the test field in order to simulate the real-life usage and measure the loads
Validating the measured data Data clean-up by removing anomalies like spikes, drift, and offsets
An in-depth durability analysis to gain insights into the damage potential
Data conversion and reporting
Accelerated test schedules for simulation, test benches, or proving grounds
Download the white paper and ensure that every activity and every step of your testing campaign is tuned and optimized for testing productivity while keeping the same high-level quality.
