Cumulative Damage Theory Applied to Combine Transmission Design 650685

The system used to propel grain harvesting combines is described along with its particular characteristics and power requirements. Because of the nature of the propulsion requirements, use of cumulative damage theory in designing gears, bearings, and shafts is particularly advantageous. A procedure is described for reducing field load histories, laboratory determined torque-life curves, and the Miner and Corten-Dolan equations into a form directly usable in designing reliable, economical transmission components.
