AE 615 SOIL DYNAMICS IN TILLAGE AND TRACTION                                                                              (2L+1P) II

Objective
To acquaint and equip with the dynamic properties of soil, soil failure and design of tillage tools, prediction of traction performance and dimensional analysis of different variables related to soil- tire system.

Theory

UNIT I
Dynamic properties of soil and their measurements.

UNIT II
Stress-strain relationship in soil, failure pattern.

UNIT III
Pulverization, effect of speed; relationship of soil parameters to forces acting on tillage tools.

UNIT IV
Design of soil working implements; mechanics and design of traction and transport devices.

Practicals
Relationship of soil parameters to the forces acting on tillage tools, wheel slippage and tyre selection, design and performance of traction devices and soil working tools.
