Abstract :

Excavator bucket life is the very important issue, because it fails to complete its designed life. The major reason behind this failure is its working environment and modes of operations. Excavator buckets are designed to work in worst conditions, situations for long duration of time. During its working bucket undergoes with great amount of stresses, loads, jerks, deformations and it would be very difficult to withstand in such situations. Hence the excavator bucket material is tough. However this selection is not sufficient for designed bucket life. In bucket observations, we found cracks and tear areas on buckets which failed during working. Excavator Bucket always undergoes the heavy loading conditions. Hence the life of bucket is less than the designed life span. It all happened only due to the vibrations and the heavy loading conditions. Deformation and stresses induced in bucket structure must be studied well so that the life of bucket can be improved. It can be done by conducting Load test by using CAE software. Now a day's CAE softwares are more reliable and giving more approximate results. The sudden jerks, stresses, deformations are usually accurse during working. Due to sudden jerks and impact with rocks or tough materials, vibrations induces. This vibrations are measured in the form of natural frequency of a bucket. Continuous impact of such vibration range may affect the bucket life. And hence the cracks can be developed which leads to failure of bucket. There is a particular range of frequency up to which bucket can withstand. But beyond that range bucket may fails. Hence the study of resonant frequency also an important aspect for excavator bucket.
