The influence of its design geometric parameters, namely, the cutting angle ( α ), the lifting angle ( β ), the parameters ( q ) and ( m ) on both the tillage forces (vertical, lateral and draught) and the tillage quality (disturbance of soil), was studied. The numerical analysis showed that the increase of these parameters has a great influence on the draught and lateral forces. The increase of the cutting and lifting angles ( α , β ) caused an increase of the draught force with linear variation. However, the increase of the geometric parameters ( m ) and ( q ) decreases linearly this force. The lateral... force decreases linearly with the geometric parameter ( q ) and the cutting angle and it increases with the lifting angle. However, it is independent of the value ( m ). All these geometric parameters have a little influence on the vertical force. This study showed that the lifting angle ( β ) and the parameter ( m ) have the highest impact on the consumed energy compared to other parameters. Furthermore, the selection of α = 45°, β = 25°, m = 1 and q = 24 as the geometric parameters to design the cylindroidal mouldboard plough can ensure the reduction of the consumption of energy and ameliorate the quality of soil inversion.
