Assembly and Evaluation of the Instrumentation System on a Soil Bin
Some parameters required to characterize soil machine relations have to be well identified.
New measuring devices should be developed as new measurable parameters are identified so that their importance in soil machine relations can be determined by physical measurement.
Therefore, this book gives details on the assembly and performance evaluation of an instrumentation system that consists of a data logger, load cells, strain gauge amplifier and a computer system for instant and direct measurement of the soil-tool interaction parameters.
The book is recommended for the use of students and professionals in Agricultural Engineering, Soil Science, Civil Engineering and other Soil-Machine related disciplines.
