Machines. Technologies. Materials., Vol. 11 (2017), Issue 12, pg(s) 559-561

This paper presents a model for determining the static load on movable spatial console lattice girder and the clamps which bounded the same one. The paper presents guidelines for theoretical determination of the static load using an appropriate software package and conducted modeling for this purpose. Also, the paper displays the methodology for experimental determining the static load by setting a model for the experimental measurement on the specific measuring points of the clams and the characteristic positions of the carrying console. The research is carried out on a concrete real object and the results are shown numerically and graphically, which enables carrying out an analysis of the load and deducing concreting conclusions about the research object.

## DIRECTIONS FOR LOAD AND SAFETY APPRECIATION OF CARRYING STRUCTURES COMPONENT ELEMENTS

Trans Motauto World, Vol. 2 (2017), Issue 1, pg(s) 5-7

This paper presents the directions for load and safety appreciation of carrying structures component elements and their application to a particular object respectively carrying structure of rotating excavator working wheel. Load and safety of the carrying structure and its component elements are estimated based on the calculation of load and safety factors. The estimated load is based on the calculated value of load factors, while the safety by comparison of the calculated safety factors to the values of recommended minimum safety factors obtained by examinations of such structures in practice. With these indicators we have a situation where we are providing the static strength control of the analyzed elements. The paper presents numerical values of the load and safety coefficients for the excavator SRs-630 working in the coalmine "Suvodol" Bitola, for all characteristic working regimes in its exploitation lifetime. The numerical values of load and safety coefficients relate to clamps of the working wheel carrying structure and the most loaded joint of this structure.

## THE STRAIN OF CLAMPS ON CARRYING STRUCTURE

As a result of the conducted theoretical and experimental researches of the local state of strains at the most loaded intersection of the clamps on the working wheel’s carrying structure in a concrete rotating excavator, an array of results has been attained. This paper represents systematically by means of diagrams the results of such researches under normal and specific working regimes of the excavator.

The specific working regimes during the entire exploitation life of the excavator account for about 1 %, with the excavator working in specific cases while digging under unpredictable working conditions. The experimental magnitudes of the strains are obtained with conducted experimental measurement in compliance with the established methodology for this purpose. The theoretical magnitudes of the strains are derived using the established mathematical model of clamps and applied computer FEM analysis.
