 Abstract
Agricultural tractors must have a function of ROPS to protect drivers under roll-over accident. In this study, finite element analyses and an optimal design were performed to reduce the cost and the production period of the cabin frame of a tractor to pass the ROPS strength test. To confirm the pass of ROPS strength test of an initial design model, the results of deformation and principal strain from the analyses were evaluated. To reduce the weight of the cabin frame, design of experiment of Taguchi was implemented, and an optimal design was obtained. The weight of the optimal design model was reduced by 7% comparing with the initial design model.
