Aspects regarding the behaviour of the work equipment of a loader during the work process
This paper deals with the study of the work equipment consisting of the bucket and its supporting frame for a front loader. For the two components of the equipment, 3D models were generated in the Solid Edge design software and then they were introduced for analysis in the Algor software, specialized in finite element analysis. The goal of the finite element analysis was to observe the state of stresses and deformations that occur in the work equipment of the loader during the working process, when on the bucket and on its supporting frame appear stresses which can become dangerous. The results obtained provide specialists in the construction equipments domain with information that can be used to improve the working performance of such equipments.
