Abstract

Using distinct partial differential equations, complicated structures breaks down into small elements using the computational approach known as finite element analysis (FEA). Engineers in agriculture can investigate the behavior of numerous input products using numerical simulation based on the FEA technique in order to enhance the design of any machine without constructing a prototype. The current study employed the FEA technique to develop and simulate the frame of a battery-operated ridge planter with a drip line installer. A static structural test was performed through using the FEA technique in the ANSYS version 15.0 workbench software, and a 3D-CAD model of the frame of a battery-operated ridge planter with drip line installer was made using the Solid Works software. To determine the force necessary in the universal testing machine and the applied forces, respectively, on the frame, a specific fixture has been generated.

Total deformation was measured at 23313 mm, and the simulation revealed that the maximum shear stress, equivalent stress, normal stress, stress intensity, and strain energy were, respectively, 8.40 MPa, 16.68 MPa, 16.4 MPa, 16.8 MPa, and 3.55 MPa at 1817.5 N of total load acting on the frame.

The stress values are within the material's yield strength, it was also observed. The FEA methodology was discovered to be a way for creating and simulating the frame of a battery-operated ridge planter with drip line installer that is very effective and scientific.
