About this project

Abstract

This project aimed to reduce header losses by optimising settings of five variables: rotor speed; height of the rotor relative to ground and crop; gap between the hood inlet and the circumference of the stripping rotor; height of the hood inlet relative to the crop and rotor axis; forward speed of operation.
