Static Analysis and Parameter Optimization of the Grab Bucket
This paper aims to provide an optimum design for the grab bucket on the port, analyze the parameters related to its grabbing function from static aspect. Taking the minimum grabbing moment as static elevation indicators, a nonlinear multi-variable optimization model was established taking the grabbing torque as the objective function. A function atlas was drawn on this purpose. The Matlab GA toolbox has been used in optimal design of the key parameters of grab bucket which used to be designed according to experiences, to improve the grab torque which leads to better performance and the higher efficiency of the grab bucket .In the end, an case was studied to demonstrate its effectiveness.
