Özet

This paper reveals the results of a study performed on a three-bottom moldboard plough in order to measure the strains in field measurements by means of bounded strain gages on different parts of the moldboard frame and compares them with the results of finite element simulations. It was found that the reduced thickness of the moldboard frame did not cause excessive stresses and the measured strains showed a close agreement with the simulated data. (C) 2019 Elsevier Ltd.
