Enable wheel loader boom durability analysis under real working conditions

Digital twins enable simulation of the real lifetime of structures and especially the prediction of when maintenance will be needed. Crucial to success is knowledge of the operational loads and the connection to lifetime simulation. The seamless integration of measured loads, mechanisms, structural analysis, durability study and the new smart virtual sensing technology for operational load estimation brings the digital twin to life. We show how to use this innovative framework for data fusion and predicting the lifetime of the key part in a wheel loader under real working conditions.
