Abstract: Heavy duty excavator machines are high power machines used in the mining, agricultural and construction industry whose principal functions are digging (material removing), ground leveling and material transport operations. Heavy duty excavators are operated during the excavation process the unknown resistive forces offered by the terrain to the bucket teeth is transformed to the other parts of the bucket. An excessive amount of these forces adversely affected on the bucket therefore, the optimization of the bucket is done on the maximum breakout forces which are exerted on it during operation. The backhoe attachment is subjected to static as well as dynamic forces. This project work includes the volume capacity of the bucket, digging forces calculation according to the standards, static force analysis and optimization of bucket attachment of an excavator. In this work, we have considered four different materials such as AISI 4140, AISI 1040, SAILMA 450 HI and HARDOX 400. Static analysis is carried out and according to topology optimization results, the material is removed from the regions where there is less stress concentration. The weight optimization is done around 14.90% by using AISI 4140, 15.60% by using AISI 1040, 15.90% by using SAILMA 450HI, 15.33% by using HARDOX 400, but this increment in stress, as well as deformation of bucket linkage, is within permissible limit. The objective of this work is to model an excavator bucket by using CATIA V5 R21 software. Model is imported through ANSYS 18.0 software for meshing and analysis.
