The quality of the pneumatic seeding mechanism operation is defined by a variety of factors, including aerodynamic characteristic quantities. But aerodynamics of seeding systems is poorly studied. Therefore studying of the air flow distribution in a seeding mechanism seed vessel is considered to be a current issue. Overpressure seeding mechanism with a seed vessel compulsory sealing is approved as the object of the studying. The aim of the studying is to define the impact of the sealing elements shape on the air flow distribution in a seed vessel by various seeding mechanism operating modes. The building-up of the air flow distribution model is carried out at the software environment Solidworks Flow Simulation with allowance for a seeding wheel rotation. The aerodynamic model building-up technique is given. The graphic charts of airflow velocity change in an upper part of the seed vessel are made. The designed overpressure seeding mechanism aerodynamic model is analyzed.
