Abstract
During harvesting operations, soft soils with a reduced bearing capacity are susceptible to the creation of ruts. These can have negative consequences by altering the natural drainage and compacting the compacting the soil, which can lead to a loss of site productivity. site productivity. In a context of heavy rainfall or winter thaw, this vulnerability is accentuated and vulnerability is increased and mitigation measures are required. With collaborators in Abitibi, FPInnovations has studied various alternative alternative practices and developed a cost calculation tool that allows the to choose the least expensive option to reduce the presence and severity of ruts. ruts and their severity.
Abstract
Lors des opérations de récolte, les sols mous, à capacité portante réduite, sont sensibles à la création d’ornières. Celles-ci peuvent avoir des conséquences négatives en modifiant le drainage naturel et en compactant le sol, ce qui peut entraîner une perte de productivité du site. Dans un contexte de pluie abondante ou de dégel hivernal, cette vulnérabilité s’accentue et des mesures d’atténuation sont nécessaires. Avec des collaborateurs en Abitibi, FPInnovations a étudié différentes pratiques alternatives et développé un outil de calcul des coûts qui permet de choisir l’option la moins onéreuse afin de diminuer la présence d’ornières et leur gravité.

Abstract
This study aimed to evaluate, in an accelerated manner, several aerodynamic drag reduction measures applicable to Class 8 tractor-trailer combinations. The tests were conducted according to SAE J1321 Joint TMC/SAE Fuel Consumption Test Procedure - Type II (SAE International 1986). The test results show up to 5% improvement in fuel consumption for the test vehicles equipped with boat tail devices, and up to 7% for the vehicles equipped with trailer skirts.
