Abstract

For the canopy the important criteria for evaluation is the safety of the machine operator. It is considered that to get and ensure higher factor of safety the machine should go through the extreme loading conditions. The design of machine should ensure higher safety of the operator during machining in extreme conditions. The protective structure for mining and self-propelled machine consists of structural components arranged on the machine in such a way that it reduces the risk to the operator. The shape and the location of the protected space is dependent on the position of the operating when operating the machine. Most of fatal accidents occurs in mining machines during operation is because of the absence of protective structure on the machine. The preferred strategy to overcome these accidents is to install fall over protective structure (FOPS) on the mining machines. Fall over protective structure in combination with Roll over protective structure (ROPS) can prevent all major accidents occurring during mining operation. Strength tests are conducted for checking feasibility of protective structure which uses experimental and numerical method.
