Large scale belt conveyor systems have a lot of unique characteristics, such as long conveying distance, large capacity and high efficiency, continuous transportation of bulk materials as well as central control and management. The motion of the belt conveyor system is controlled by a driving station, which consists mainly of two driving pulleys and one pre-tensioning pulley. The pulley drums are thin walled structures produced by rolling a thick steel sheet and welding it with two end plates.
We do a reserch and find conveyor driving drum decreased service life has been observe in the open mine resulting in frequent break downs. Drum replacement in the harsh muddy conditions stalls the operation of the belt systems up to two days. In addition to the cost of the drum, it results in a dangerous and financially cumbersome repair. The drums are subjected to variable loads depending on weather, pretension and mined material.
Therefore a methodology for modelling, which would take all these into consideration was necessary. In the current study, the aim is to test various load scenarios on a reinforced drum model and compare the results against the two types currently in service.
