Forthcoming articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

Forthcoming articles must be purchased for the purposes of research, teaching and private study only. These articles can be cited using the expression "in press". For example: Smith, J. (in press). Article Title. Journal Title.

Online First articles are published online here, before they appear in a journal issue. Online First articles are fully citeable, complete with a DOI. They can be cited, read, and downloaded. Online First articles are published as Open Access (OA) articles to make the latest research available as early as possible.

Open AccessArticles marked with this Open Access icon are Online First articles. They are freely available and openly accessible to all without any restriction except the ones stated in their respective CC licenses.

  • DESIGN AND CHARACTERISTIC PARAMETERS OF VIBRATING POTATO DIGGER FOR SMALL FARMS   Order a copy of this article
    by Pemignan Alain Joel Toure, Wei Sun 
    Abstract: Using a 3D model of the designed potato digger, numerical analyses based on FEM and SPH models, as well as a Box-Behnken experimental design, found that the digging resistance of the digger shovel was significantly reduced at high amplitude and frequency and low velocity. Furthermore, as the acceleration of the digger screen is a good indicator of separation efficiency, kinematic studies showed that for an oscillation period, the direction of the normal acceleration of the screen was downward and its intensity was higher than that of the gravitational acceleration. The field test results showed that the designed potato digger met the requirements of national and industry standards with average productivity of about 0.085 hm2/hr. In addition, the average digging resistance measured was low with a value of about 385 N and the separation of the potatoes from the soil was normal, leaving the potatoes at the back.
