    CONSTRUCTIVE DESIGN OF A BELT CONVEYOR FOR A COAL MINE

    Innovations, Vol. 6 (2018), Issue 3, pg(s) 113-115

    At the present time, mines, power plants, ports are more complicated and more functional compared to the past therefore raw material processing, production, and amount of transportation material have increased. In this paper it is calculated with using necessary equations with standard charts that a stone cargo construction with 500 t/h in the line which is formed by two conveyors with 500 m straight and 100 m which has 30o slope.

    For handling of partial or continuous goods, belt conveyors are very efficient way. Belt conveyors are used in mining, iron and steel plants, thermal power plants, ore, coal, limestone, sinter transmission, automotive and the other sectors. There are several factors that have to be taken into consideration when a belt conveyor being designed. That means belt conveyor design process requires repetitive strength calculations. But analytical calculations are not capable of determine to entire stresses which occured at whole body. During the design process, time can be saved with the assistance of Finite Element Method. In this study; as a result, it has been seen that, F.E.M is the most practical method which can be utilized during belt conveyor design process.
