Sideways Overturning Analysis of Forwarder Using a Multibody Dynamics Analysis Program
Journal of Biosystems Engineering, volume 27, issue 3, 2002, Pages 185~194
DOI : 10.5307/JBE.2002.27.3.185
The objective of this study was to analyze a stability of sideways overturning of a forwarder developed by the Forestry Research Institute. The stability analysis was conducted using a multibody dynamic analysis program. VisualNastran Desktop. A solid model of the forwarder was constructed and its physical properties such as mass, mass center and mass moment of inertia were determined on 3D CAD modeler of the Solid Edge 8.0. 3D simulations of sideways overturning of the forwarder were also performed on the Visual Nastran using the solid model when it traveled across the slope and traversed over an up-hill side obstacle. Stability comparison between a bogie-wheeled and a 6-wheeled forwarders was also made and found that the bogie-wheeled forwarder was more stable than the 6-wheeled one on slopes. The safety speeds of the forwarder predicted by the simulation under various conditions can be used as a guideline for safe operations of forwarders in mountainous area. The technique of using a solid model for the sability analysis can also be applied successfully to other vehicles like agricultural tractors, loaders and construction equipments.

DOI : 10.5307/JBE.2002.27.3.195
In order to make a winter cereal wrap silage, a tractor attached round bale wrapper was developed locally. Its specific structure and various functions were reported in the last submitted paper. In this study a control system of bale wrapper combining with the actuators of various processes was developed to make round bale wrapper compatible in the field. Also. its performance was tested by making the rye round bale. The results can be summarized as fellow. 1. The field capacity of round bale wrapping was investigated around 0.5 ha/hr, and the operating time of bale wrapper was about 3 min for each 500kg round bale 2. Plastic film which has maximum elongation rate of 796% was stretched to 150∼170% of original length and was lessened to 80∼90% of original width. 3. In the quality test of bale produced by developed bale wrapper, there was no significant changes of moisture contents if it was wrapped more than 4 layers of 25 ㎛-plastic film. 4. Also. temperature of the wrapped bale was about 33
in the beginning of fermentation and was stabled to 26∼29
during one month or more storage. Therefore, wrapping performance of the developed bale wrapper was properly.

Journal of Biosystems Engineering, volume 27, issue 3, 2002, Pages 203~210
DOI : 10.5307/JBE.2002.27.3.203
In this study, the leveling control system for a tractor has been developed. The experimental model showed that the implementation of the proposed hydraulic control system fur the prototype design of a slope land tractor was feasible. The front axle was designed as a center pin type and the rear axle was designed as a trailing arm type. The leveling control of the body on the slope land was accomplished by controlling the height of the right and left trailing arms using the electronic controlled hydraulic cylinder. The maximum leveling control angles were
for roll angle and 7
far pitch angle. The front and rear wheel drives were transmitted by gears from the main shaft to the final drive. The adaptability of the hydraulic control system was tested and investigated by analyzing the system response in time and frequency domain. The hydraulic control system on a step input showed a linearly increasing trend without any overshoot state. The hydraulic control system on a frequency input showed a little phase differences and gain drops within the range of 0.3Hz.

Journal of Biosystems Engineering, volume 27, issue 3, 2002, Pages 219~226
DOI : 10.5307/JBE.2002.27.3.219
Desorption equilibrium moisture contents of oak mushroom were measured by the static method using salt solutions at flour temperature levels of 35
and five relative humidity levels in the range from 11.0% to 90.8%. EMC data were fitted to the modified Henderson, Chung-Pfost, modified Halsey and modified Oswin models using nonlinear regression analysis. Drying tests far oak mushroom were conducted in an experimental dryer equipped with air conditioning unit. The drying test were performed in triplicate at flour air temperatures of 35
and three relative humidities of 30%, 50% and 70% respectively. Measured moisture ratio data were fitted to the selected four drying models(Lewis, Page, simplified diffusion and Thompson models) using stepwise multiple regression analysis. The results of comparing root mean square errors for EMC models showed that modified Halsey was the best model, and modified Oswin models could be available far oak mushroom. The results of comparing coefficients of determination and root mean square errors of moisture ratio for four drying models showed that Page model were found to fit adequately to all drying test data with a coefficient of determination of 0.9990 and root mean square error of moisture ratio of 0.00739.

Journal of Biosystems Engineering, volume 27, issue 3, 2002, Pages 227~234
DOI : 10.5307/JBE.2002.27.3.227
This study was conducted to nondestructively estimate the volumetric information of peach and pit and to visualize the 3D information of internal structure from magnetic resonance imaging(MRI) data. Bruker Biospec 7T spectrometer operating at a proton reosonant frequency of 300 MHz was used for acquisition of MRI data of peach. Image processing algorithms and visualization techniques were implemented by using MATLAB (Mathworks) and Visualization Toolkit(Kitware), respectively. Thresholding algorithm and Kohonen's self organizing map(SOM) were applied to MRI data fur region segmentation. Volumetric information were estimated from segemented images and compared to the actual measurements. The average prediction errors of peach and pit volumes were 4.5%, 26.1%, respectively for the thresholding algorithm. and were 2.1%, 19.9%. respectively for the SOM. Although we couldn't get the statistically meaningful results with the limited number of samples, the average prediction errors were lower when the region segmentation was done by SOM rather than thresholding. The 3D visualization techniques such as isosurface construction and volume rendering were successfully implemented, by which we could nondestructively obtain the useful information of internal structures of peach.

DOI : 10.5307/JBE.2002.27.3.235
Performance of the heat pump with attaching an air heat exchanger was investigated in the heating condition when the air heat exchanger was worked in the ambient air temperature of -5 to 11
and air flow rate of 542 to 747 ㎡/h. Performance tests for heating condition were conducted in an experimental room equipped with heat pump. The performance tests were performed in a ambient temperature of -4 ∼ 11
, and room temperature of 4∼22
respectively. Measured data(temperature, capacity of heat transfer and consumption of electronic power) were analyzed to the efficiency of HEEVA(Heat Exchanger fur the Evaporator), overall heat transfer coefficient and COP of heat pump. The results of inlet temperature for evaporator increased that the temperature was 2 ∼6
, and inlet temperature for condenser decreased that the temperature was 3 ∼ 8
. The results of comparing efficiency of HEEVA for the ratio of heat exchange between hot air and cold air showed that efficiency were considered to 91% because of the ratio of 83∼98%. The results of comparing of COP for the heat pump increased that improvement COP was approximately 0.3∼7.5 than HEEVA had not been operated.

Journal of Biosystems Engineering, volume 27, issue 3, 2002, Pages 241~248
DOI : 10.5307/JBE.2002.27.3.241
An electronic noses system including six metal oxide sensors was used to predict the characteristics of shelf-life of soybean curd. Soybean curd was stored at two different temperatures defined as low temperature(5
) and high temperature(25
). Resistance changes of the sensors were measured 13 times for 19 days at low temperature and 19 times for 120 hours at high temperature. Three different analytical methods such as graphical analysis(GA), principal component analysis(PCA), and cluster analysis(CA) were used to analyze sensors outputs. The ratio of resistance was decreased according to increasement of shelf-life. Using PCA it was possible to predict freshness and shelf-life time of soybean curds. Also, using CA it was possible to simplify an electronic nose system. Electronic nose system could be an efficient method to predict shelf-life and to evaluate quality in foods.

Journal of Biosystems Engineering, volume 27, issue 3, 2002, Pages 249~258
DOI : 10.5307/JBE.2002.27.3.249
The fourteen different electrodes coated with polymeric lipid membrane were evaluated to selectively monitor the sweet, salty, sour and bitter tastes, and umami. The polymeric lipid membrane consisted of the three components, or polymer matrix, plasticizer and electroactive material, the compositional ratio of which was 1:1.25:1. Herein, the 14 different electroactive materials were used. Sucrose, NaCl, citric acid, caffeine and MSG were used as standard materials of sweet, salty, sour and bitter tastes, and umami. The linear responses of each electrode regarding 5 tastes were analyzed by means of the correlation coefficient between electric potential difference and concentration of a taste material when the linearity was based on a linear model and a thermodynamic model, respectively. As fur salty taste, the electrode coated with valinomycin had a selective linearity at the significance level of 0.01. For monitoring sweet taste, the electrode with oleylamine and the electrode with the mixture of tai-n-octylmethylammonium chloride and dioctylphosphate (2:8) showed the significant linearities at the levels of 0.05 and 0.10, respectively.

Journal of Biosystems Engineering, volume 27, issue 3, 2002, Pages 259~266
DOI : 10.5307/JBE.2002.27.3.259
It is crucial to know spatial soil variability for precision farming. However, it is time-consuming, and difficult to measure spatial soil properties. Therefore, there are needs fur sensing technology to estimate spatial soil variability, and for electronic mapping technology to store, manipulate and process the sampled data. This research was conducted to develop a real-time soil organic matter sensor and an electronic mapping system. A soil organic matter sensor was developed with a spectrophotometer in the 900∼1,700 nm range. It was designed in a penetrator type to measure reflectance of soil at 15cm depth. The signal was calibrated with organic matter content (OMC) of the soil which was sampled in the field. The OMC was measured by the Walkeley-Black method. The soil OMCs were ranged from 0.07 to 7.96%. Statistical partial least square and principle component regression analyses were used as calibration methods. Coefficient of determination, standard error prediction and bias were 0.85 0.72 and -0.13, respectively. The electronic mapping system was consisted of the soil OMC sensor, a DGPS, a database and a makeshift vehicle. An algorithm was developed to acquire data on sampling position and its OMC and to store the data in the database. Fifty samples in fields were taken to make an N-fertilizer dosage map. Mean absolute error of these data was 0.59. The Kring method was used to interpolate data between sampling nodes. The interpolated data was used to make a soil OMC map. Also an N-fertilizer dosage map was drawn using the soil OMC map. The N-fertilizer dosage was determined by the fertilizing equation recommended by National Institute of Agricultural Science and Technology in Korea. Use of the N-fertilizer dosage map would increase precision fertilization up to 91% compared with conventional fertilization. Therefore, the developed electronic mapping system was feasible to not only precision determination of N-fertilizer dosage, but also reduction of environmental pollution.
