A new method of evaluating tillage tools using computational fluid dynamics is proposed. Steady-state CFD only and transient two-way fluid-structure interaction simulations were run to predict draft and vertical forces on a spring-reset field cultivator standard. Using CFD the soil was treated as a visco-plastic fluid using the Bingham-plastic material model. Lab tests were run using a rigid flat steel bar and a production field cultivator standard with 178 and 254 mm sweeps for comparison. The… CONTINUE READING
