Title: Estimating force and power requirements for crosscut shearing of roundwood.
Author: Arola, Rodger A.;
Source: Research Paper NC-73. St. Paul, MN: U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Forest Service, North Central Forest Experiment Station
Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)
Description: Presents a procedure which, through the use of nomographs, permits rapid estimation of the force required to crosscut shear logs of various species and diameters with shear blades ranging in thickness from 1/4 to 7/8 inch. In addition, nomographs are included to evaluate hydraulic cylinder sizes, pump capacities, and motor horsepower requirements to effect the cut.
Keywords: shearing force, horsepower, cylinder sizes, pump capacity, nomographs, shear blade thickness
