Abstract

A method is investigated for damping the oscillation of a very wide agricultural spray rig. When mechanical dampers are used, they couple the rolling disturbance of the vehicle into the tilt of the spray booms, so an alternative technique is desirable. A method whereby the booms are driven in a manner analogous to a tightrope walker’s balancing pole is shown to be effective.
