About this book

Aiming to improve work efficiency in such areas as tillage in agriculture, earth-moving in civil engineering, and tunnel-making in sea-bed operations, this work offers an introduction to Finite Element Method (FEM) analysis of soil-machine systems. It explains the advantage of FEM's numerical approach over traditional analytical and empirical methods of dealing with complex factors from non-linear mechanical behaviour to geometric configurations.


Contents

Basic procedures in a finite element analysis; constitutive models for agricultural soils; simulation of soil-metal interfaces; algorithms in static, dynamic, linear and non-linear finite element analyses; examples of soil-tool; programming techniques for finite element analyses.
