Delivering enhanced agronomic strategies for improved crop performance on water repellent soils in Western Australia
In this research, Discrete Element Method is used to simulate the interaction of soil and mouldboard plough in order to improve effectiveness of soil burial.
This study demonstrates the potential of DEM to predict soil movement in design optimization of narrow point openers, commonly used by no-till farmers in Australia to open a furrow and place seed and fertilizer in the soil.
This research examines the applicability of EDEM in simulating a ripping operation in a cohesive soil to establish the optimal tool design parameters and operational parameters that will result to optimal energy usage.
In this study, the discrete element modelling (DEM) of the soil-tool interaction was carried out using EDEM software. Results showed that DEM is a valid method to model tillage operation.
