Steerage,hydraulic steer,fault, wear,finite-element method,


The use of hydrostatic steerage in agricultural and construction vehicles shows that, compared to traditional hydromechanical steerage, it has better balance and no steering wheels vibrations. But in certain environments, these automobiles have to work in severe conditions and the steering breaks down rather quickly. There can be multiple reasons for this – dirt, wear, excessive turn effort. The analysis of defects of the XY 145 0/1 hydraulic steers has demonstrated that 100% of breakdowns are caused by the wear of the slide valve-housing pair, i.e. this contact is limitative. Therefore, complete wear of these parts lead to the situation when turning the vehicle requires the effort exceeding normal. To find out how to increase durability of the valve-housing pair, we conducted a research of its stress-strain state. The strains in the contact can be studied with the help of the finite-element method which allows high-precision modeling of any components and mechanisms in operation. As a result, we generated a finite-element mesh with the minimal, average and maximal pressure values, transitions and deformations in elements; pressure values were presented as a graphical file with a diagram. The model of the strain state of hydraulic steer XY-145 slide valve-housing contact can be used in selecting the materials which, applied to the worn surfaces, will increase the general durability of hydraulic steers.
