Wind Load Calculation For Belt Conveyor Truss Design
Aug 31, when a conveyor has a large span, or if you are designing the high-rise conveyor truss near the pulling head, wind load will play a big role in design ... to make a long story short we ended up with a fatigue failure on a plate due to the slow cycling of heavy rock bouncing over idlers. this is the closest thing i have ever encountered that.Belt conveyor capacity table 1. determine the surcharge angle of the material. the surcharge angle, on the average, will be 5 degrees to 15 degrees less than the angle of repose. (ex. 27 - 12 = 15 ) 2. determine the density of the material in pounds per cubic foot (lb/ft3). 3. choose the idler shape. 4. select a suitable conveyor belt.
