Damage Analysis of Moldboard Plow
Department of Mechanical Engineering, Universitas Sriwijaya, 30662, Indralaya, South Sumatera, Indonesia
Moldboard plow is a tool used to cultivate the agricultural land. The material of the moldboard is a double layer where the outer layer is high carbon steel and the inside is a low carbon steel. The findings on the side edge of the moldboard plow are often damaged due to bent deformation and then broken. The study was conducted to determine the cause of the damage through simulation and testing laboratory. The simulation results show that the moldboard is overloaded by its material capability. This is shown also from the results of testing the chemical composition that this material is a low-alloy steel single layer without surface hardening. Hardness tests conducted using Rockwell C show that this steel has a tensile strength of only about 400 MPa. This is reinforced by the results of microstructural observations showing that more than 99% of the phases are ferrite.
