Optimal adaptation of currently exploited and new bucket-wheel excavators for mining of overburden including interlayers with excessive mining resistance and unmineable inclusions...
Monitoring system of bucket wheel excavator load carrying structure efforts and method of diagnostic signals analysis for current assessment of threats of load carrying structure damages as well as constant control...
Real-time mine-face inspection system, based on geophysical methods, capable to detect hard rock inclusions and geological formations which are difficult to be excavated by bucket-wheel excavators...
In order to achieve the foreseen aim it is necessary to conduct preparatory works including:
- Theoretical development of a method of load carrying structure efforts assessment on the basis of analysis of measurements registered and processed by the system.
- Realization of simulation tests and tests stands preparation enabling development of method of localization of measurement sensors in order to monitor selected areas of load carrying structure of bucket wheel excavators exposed to possible failures.
- Development of a method of experimental determination of parameters and indicators used for calculation of fatigue strength of structural elements on the basis of registered measurement signals.
