Computer Aided Analysis of Cross-pit Conveyor Systems.
NTIS: PB/267-778 Available for Reference At Bureau Libraries :436 pages
An existing computer simulation of a dragline was modified to simulate a dragline dumping into the hopper portion of a cross-pit conveyor system. This revised computer model was then used to study four proposed cross-pit conveyor systems. Parameters such as dragline position, hopper position, and digging precedure were varied to maximize the dragline production. This peformance was compared with the conventional side-casting technique.
