The breakout force describes according to the ISO 6015: 2006 (Earth-moving machinery - Hydraulic excavators - Methods of measuring tool forces), the force that an earth-moving machine can apply to the moved Well, mostly earth to move.
In addition, the term breakaway force is used in mechanics to describe the force that is required to overcome static friction and initiate the transition to sliding friction . In the case of rotary movements, the breakaway torque takes its place .
For example, a breakaway force is the force that has to be applied in order to overcome the effective frictional forces and forces that arise from tilting two components with respect to one another in a suspension fork . Static friction changes into dynamic friction. Thus, the breakaway force is exactly the minimum force that is required to convert a bearing from a static to a dynamic state.
