Modelling, FE Analysis and Optimization of the components of Backhoe: A Review Study
Santosh kumar Tewari,  Dr. Premanand S Chauhan
In India, the Construction industry is undoubtedly the backbone and propelling force behind our progress towards the goal of becoming a developed nation. In response to booming construction industry, the utilization of Earth Moving Equipment has increased considerably, which lead to high rate of Machine Failure in such working environment. From all the classified earth moving equipment’s the backhoe-loader (Backhoe-Loader) machine is the most popular one in the urban area development. The backhoe loader mechanism must work reliably under unpredictable working conditions. Thus it is very much necessary for the designers to provide not only an equipment of maximum reliability but also of minimum weight and cost, keeping design safe under all loading conditions. So, for fulfilling this need, the Finite element approach (FEA) comes into play, which consists of a computer generated 3D-CAD model or design of a component/ machine is stressed and analysed for specific results. In this work, a Chronological review study of all the literature available is compiled and concluded for further reference of the users, who wants to carry out the future work in the relevant field, whereas this work will help the users to know the exact behaviour of the connections between the components of the machine in sustaining the forces/ stresses generated in carry out the required activity with enough strength under unpredictable working conditions, which results in better design optimization of the backhoe-loader machine.
