Abstract

The Goryachkin trihedral wedge theories describe soil flow over a surface resembling the wing of a sweep. The current study tested the Goryachkin crushing and lifting theories’ prediction of soil flow across a sweep by comparing with measurements from observed soil flow. Treatments included sweeps with three different rake angles (13.5, 16, and 44°) operated at three speeds (5, 7, and 9 km/h) and at two depths (50 and 100 mm). Flow direction was determined from scratch marks on the sweep surface.
