Structural Modeling of ROPS Under Dynamic Loading 740798

The use of scaled models for structural evaluation of new designs is becoming increasingly important from the standpoint of reduced lead time, costs, and space requirements. John Deere Waterloo Tractor Works has developed a dynamic structural modeling technique, based on roll-over protective structures (ROPS) safety compliance tests, which provides good correlation with full-scale results. This paper presents the development and application of this technique.
