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.
