The Effects of Physical Properties on the Design of Conveyor Systems.
Christensen-RW; Heins-RW; Wu-KK
Bulk Materials Handling 1973 Oct; 2(1):19-34
Discussed is the application of statistical experimental design to analyzing belt conveying of bulk materials. Tests are presently being made to determine the influence of such material properties as particle shape, particle size distribution, angle of internal friction, angle of repose, angle of surcharge, and moisture content on the way these materials are transported by a conveyor belt.
