Front-End Loader Linkage Durability Analysis Using Load Input from True-Load

Finite element analysis is a useful tool for the evaluation of the structural components of construction equipment. A common approach is to apply static loads to the finite element models to represent loading under normal field operations. The static loads applied often represent “worst-case” forces under those operations. The structure under investigation is then determined to be acceptable or not based on meeting target values for stress, strain, deflection, and/or some other criteria.
