Optimization Design of a New Heavy-Duty Self-Unloading Semi-Trailer
Based on sufficient market research, a new model of self-unloading semi-trailer, whose maximum loading capacity is 30 tons, has been designed. The paper describes its overall structure, the three-dimensional diorama model and the finite element model of the frame. Based on the analysis of the models and the results of the calculation, the parameters of the frame are optimized. The advantages of the new design are as follows: the new design makes the most of the advantages of self-unloading trailers and semi-trailers, that is, self-unloading, security, stability, high efficiency, environmental protection.
