A major part of working operations performed by a motor-grader is accompanied by asymmetric action of the resultant vector of external resistance forces applied to the main blade. The eccentrically applied horizontal loads together with additional lateral forces affect the parameters of the machine road-holding ability resulting in deviation of its actual trajectory from the planned one. In the presented work on the basis of the developed model there have been analyzed the impact of operational characteristics of the working process on the indicators of the machine road-holding ability.

Performance of work operations by a motor-grader is accompanied by action of asymmetrically applied external loading. As dissipative forces act between the wheels and the support surface, this force action leads to the grader deviation from the set trajectory of movement. The experimentally developed model of the vehicle behavior at performing work operations allows estimating indexes of road- holding ability depending on soil characteristics, geometric and kinematic parameters of the machine.
