MODELING TURNING AROUND DYNAMICS OF ARTICULATED FRAME TRACTOR THE HINGE
Due to the small turning radius, Articulated tractors' characteristic is higher mobility than that of the conventional tractors. However, its price is high. It is not accessible in Viet Nam.
The paper aims to introduce the research results on the rotation dynamics of the Articulated tractors at the top edge of the field to find out the best operation mode in practice. By using Dalambe, we had developed the differential equations to present the Articulated tractors’ rotational dynamics. Then they were solved on the MATLAB&Simulink with the index of evaluation is that the minimum area for the tractor turning at the top edge of the field.
The results have shown that the steering angle, steering speed, and the Articulated tractors’ speed are the main factor to affect the rotation dynamics. These results are primarily for improving the efficient use of Articulated tractors
