Simulation of the Loading Dynamics of a Log Forwarder 982007

The main purpose of this investigation was to develop the virtual prototype of the whole log forwarder by using ADAMS dynamic system simulation software. The virtual prototype contains hydraulic systems of the loader (except the grapple), mechanisms (steering, bogie axles), tire-terrain interaction, the log loader with structural flexibility and the control systems of the loader. Then the virtual prototype was validated with a simple procedure describing loading dynamics.
