Determination of driving force of elliptic planetary vibroexciter of road machines
Necessary compaction of soil, crushed stone, and asphaltconcrete in the road branch is not only a component of the technological process of making a road bed, bedding and surface, but also serves as actually main operation to provide their strength, stability, and durability.
The main means of compaction of asphaltconcrete mixtures are vibrating and combined rollers, additionally equipped with rubbermounted and smoothrolling staticweight rollers.
The working part of a vibroroller is a metallic roll of hollowcore welded construction, inside of which there is a builtin vibroexciter, being a source of shaking force, transferred on the roll and exciting driving force, that introduces the system “roller – compaction material” into oscillatory motion.
One of the effective methods of increasing of compaction machines efficiency is the use of asymmetrical vibroexciters of planetary type. Their inertial runner changeable angle rate relating to the center of the inner race arc is provided with the axis eccentricity of the spider rotation relatively to the arc center or noncircular form of the inner race. Meanwhile, the runner makes complicated planeparallel movement [1].
Vibroexciter, from the point of view of the process of roadbuilding materials compacting is the central element of the system, effecting all other subsystems. This is also true for the case when it is set in the roll of a road roller. Major parameters of the vibroexciter is the sum driving force, frequency, and vibrational amplitude, as well as power supply of the working process, that is, consumed power of the drive.
Since there are practically no study of elliptic planetary vibroexciters in scientific literature, we will investigate the working process of a planetary vibroexciter with elliptic inner race and make its brief dynamic analysis for three different settings of the spider axis: in the center of symmetry, in the left and right focus of the elliptic inner race. For the sake of clearness, we will make practical calculating for one of experimental models with the following parameters: the runner mass mb=0,06597; sliding friction coefficient f=0,2; rooling friction coefficient к=0,00002; pivot bolt radius rC=0,0015; runner radius rb=0,015; mass of the spider mK=0,3788. values are given in SI units.
For the calculating scheme we accept the following assumptions:
 body and links of kinematic chain of a vibroexciter are rigid;
 there are no clearances in movable links;
 links, as parts of a vibroexciter, are made and arranged ideally accurately;
 all angles are counted anticlockwise;
 inertial runner (roller) uniform disk;
 center of gravity of the spider is in the middle of its length L.
Design diagram for dynamic analysis of the elliptic planetary vibroexciter is presented on Figure 1.
The system of forces, presented on Figure 1, relates to plane optional, and allows to equate three equations of equilibrium [2], solving which we find three force factors: XO,YO and R21.

To follow the tendency of changing dynamic parameters we will examine the influence of geometric parameters on the basic dynamic characteristics on the example of experimental model of the planetary vibroexciter with elliptic inner race for the case of central position of the spider axis, taking three values of eccentricities of the elliptic inner race: е1=0,507; е2=0,6 и е3=0,8.

Having calculated focal lengths for three pointed eccentricities using the formula
c a e ,
where: e is eccentricity of the elliptic inner race, we receive: с1=0,038; с2=0,045 and с3=0,06.
Using equations presented above (1 – 9) we will draw comparative diagrams of driving force projections dependence for three values of focal lengths (Figures 2 and 3).

To make complete analysis of the vobroexciter parameters, we will use MathCAD software product, which allows to overlap a few linear diagrams in one, that is threedimensional plotting. The diagrams can rotate in space, can be plotted in changing colors or with graticule overlay. Volumetric dependences shown on Figures 4 and 5, which analogs are diagrams of Figures 2 and 3, can serve as examples of such plottings.
Analyzing diagrams, shown on Figure 4, one can notice the tendency to decreasing the period of vibrations of driving force projection on abscissa axis, at increasing of focal length more than 0.045, which was unsighted when we analyzed the plane diagram (Figure 2) and points at undisputed advantage of threedimensional diagrams when we analyze the dynamic characteristics of the vibroexciter.

Summarizing the written above, we can make the following conclusions:
 The use of a planetary vibroexciter with elliptic inner race gives substantial advantage in generated driving force against an analog vibroexciter, equipped with a round inner race with the same dimensions and initial parameters.
 Selecting the mode of setting the spider axis of a planetary vibroexciter in one of focal points of elliptic inner race leads to the increase of generated driving force, 2.2 times on abscissa axis and 2.4 times on ordinate axis, against the central position of the spider axis. This proves the effectiveness of the elliptic planetary vibroexciter use.
 1.6 times increase of focal length leads to directly proportional increase of driving force projection on ordinate axis, and 2.1 times increase of driving force projection on abscissa axis.
 The use of MathCAD software product for analyzing the working process of the planetary vibroexciter allows by means of threedimensional plotting to overlap a few linear diagrams in one volumetric, which visually improves the availability of the results of theoretical analysis of the vibroexciter main parameters influence on its dynamic characteristics and reveal major tendencies of their change.
