The aim of this study is to develop a dynamic model of the loader system of a backhoe-loader. Rigid bodies and joints in the loader mechanism and loader hydraulic system components are modelled and analyzed in the same environment using the physical modelling toolboxes inside the commercially available simulation software, MATLAB/Simulink. Interaction between the bodies and response of the hydraulic system are obtained by co-operating the mechanical and hydraulic analyses. System variables such as pressure, flow and displacement are measured on a physical machine and then compared with the simulation results. Simulation results are consistent with the measurement results. The main result of this work is the ability to determine the dynamic loads on the joints and attachments of the backhoe-loader. In addition to that, prototyping time and costs can be highly reduced by implementing this model in the design process.

Özünlü, Özcan Mutlu; Söylemez, Eres; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2009)
The aim of this study is to perform the dynamic force analysis of a 3-degrees-of-freedom excavator during digging the soil and to simulate the motion on computer screen. Standard load calculations are done statically, therefore the effects of forces changing with time on the system cannot be observed. The dynamic analysis method used in the thesis is Recursive Newton – Euler Method and the numerical analysis method for simulation is 4th Order Runge – Kutta Method. After this study, the effects of sudden vel...
Optimization of backhoe-loader mechanisms
İpek, Levent; Söylemez, Eres; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2006)
This study aims to develop a computer program to optimize the performance of loader mechanisms in backhoe-loaders. The complexity and the constraints imposed on the loader mechanism does not permit the use of classical optimization techniques used in the synthesis of mechanisms. Genetic algorithm is used to determine the values of the design parameters of the mechanism while satisfying the constraints and trying to maximize breakout forces that the machine can generate.
Route planning for unmanned air vehicles
Tulum, Kamil; İder, S. Kemal; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2009)
In this thesis, automatic routing technologies for unmanned air vehicles are investigated. A route planner that minimizes the fuel consumption and maximizes the survivability is developed. While planning the route, using more than one objective entails the auto-routing problem to multi-objective optimization considerations. In this work, these considerations are handled with search algorithms. In order to assess the route options, a fuel consumption model and a survivability model are utilized for the route...

Akıncı, Arda; Dölen, Melik; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2009)
In this study a universal command generator has been designed for robotics and CNC machinery. Encoding techniques has been utilized in order to represent the commands and their efficiencies have been discussed. The developed algorithm generates the trajectory of the end-effector with linear and circular interpolation in an offline fashion, the corresponding joint states and their error envelopes are computed with the utilization of a numerical inverse kinematic solver with a predefined precision. Finally, t...
Nonlinear dynamic modeling of gear-shaft-disk-bearing systems using finite elements and describing functions
Maliha, R; Dogruer, CU; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat (ASME International, 2004-05-01)
This study presents a new nonlinear dynamic model for a gear-shaft-disk-bearing system. A nonlinear dynamic model of a spur gear pair is coupled with linear finite element models of shafts carrying them, and with discrete models of bearings and disks. The nonlinear elasticity term resulting from backlash is expressed by a describing function, and a method developed in previous studies to determine multi harmonic responses of nonlinear multi-degree-of-freedom systems is employed for the solution. The excitat...
