Tractor overturns are the leading cause of fatalities in the agricultural industry. An inadequate use of the deployable ROPS in agricultural tractors contributes to causing accidents. To help resolve this problem, an automatically deployable ROPS was designed, constructed and tested to be used for agricultural tractors with a front-mounted ROPS. Computer-based dynamic simulation modeling techniques, validated by practical rollover trials, were employed to investigate tractor lateral rollover behavior, with particular respect to the automatic deployment devices of protective structures for tractors with a front-mounted ROPS. The simulation model developed for this investigation was produced using SolidWorks 3D software in combination with SolidWorks Motion dynamic simulation software, and for motion analysis ADAMS has been used as the calculation engine. The virtual scenarios always comprised two elements: tractor and ramp. A 1:16 scale tractor (New Holland T6070) has been modelled as the ...
