The process and issues associated with design of a belt conveyor or belt conveyor system can be a daunting one for both
the novice and experienced engineer. Many Standards covering this subject matter are convoluted, making it difficult for
entrants to this area of engineering to begin to unravel the correct path to follow. This text steps through the logical design
process to be followed, building up from bulk material parameters, through the initial selection of components to refinement
of conveyor designs. For the experienced designer, all of the formulae required to prepare a conveyor design are clearly identified
and their use illustrated by pertinent examples.
BELT CONVEYORS Principles for calculation and design enables the results of computer design programs and
consultants to be verified by manual calculation and gives a clear understanding of how changes to various components can affect the
design of a belt conveyor.
