The overall results of the study showed that the Mohr-Coulomb prediction models produced estimates within 1.1% and 1.35% of the total bucket force and the total energy to fill the bucket, respectively. Individual variances between the predicted and measured values were less than 10% for both the force and energy requirements.(Download PDF) (Export to EndNotes)
