MECHANICAL AND MATHEMATICAL RESEARCH OF LOCAL DEFORMATIONS OF A STEEL ROLLER SHELL WITH A VARIABLE GEOMETRY OF CONTACT SURFACE
PRODUCTION ENGINEERING ARCHIVES 23(2019), pp. 27-35
The article is devoted to solving the fundamental and applied problem of nonlinear structural mechanics of machines by introducing into the drum two additional stop cylinders with supporting rollers at the end and adjustable length, providing a given elliptical or circular shape of a flexible shell with a smoothly variable geometry in the area of its contact with compacted pavement material.
Compaction of soil, gravel and asphalt concrete in the sphere of road is not only an integral part of the technological process of the roadbed, road foundation and surface construction, but it is actually the main operation to ensure their strength, stability and durability. The quality, cost and speed of road construction, the possibility of using fundamentally new technologies, structures and materials is large-ly determined by the availability of modern road machinery.
