Research on Dynamic Characteristics of Implement Mechanism of Mining Excavator


Article Preview

This paper works on the dynamic characteristics of implement mechanism of mining excavator. The dynamic model of the working implement is established based on the application of Lagrange's equation. Digging resistant force, crowd force and ore gravity were discussed in detail. A full working cycle is simulated by using Matlab/Simulink. The results show the validity of the established dynamic model and the importance of the dynamic analysis for the mining excavator.
