Vehicles that collect and transport household waste are equipped with complex systems that perform the loading of the waste from the stationary collection containers, take over and pre-compact of material, compaction in the body of the structure and finally the landfill of the collected waste. Of all these operations, the compaction process is by far the most mechanically demanding. In this paper, the structural analysis of the compactor plate from a garbage truck is presented. In the first stage it was carried out parametric modelling of the assembly composed of compactor plate, counter pressure plate, the back of the garbage truck and to be compacted material. After assembly, the dynamic simulation of the compaction process in the garbage truck was performed, and the compaction mechanical stresses for the compactor plate were loaded in the Simulation module of the SolidWorks 2016 program. Here the finite element analysis was performed, resulting in the value and dispersion of the equivalent stresses (calculated by von Mises criterion), displacements and relative deformations of compactor plate from the analysed garbage truck.
