Large Mining Dump Truck Bowl (body) development

We designed and engineered several bowls (or bodies) of large mining dump trucks.  This included optimizing the shape using DEM to ensure good filling characteristics and also quick outflow of dirt during dumping.  The strength, weight and fatigue were optimized with FEA.  Full specifications and manufacturing drawings for the body were created.  Several products we engineered are working worldwide.
