Paper Title:
Finite Element Contact Analysis for Sprocket of an Armoured Face Conveyor
  Abstract

Sprocket has an important role in improving the transport performance and life of the armoured face conveyor, which is the key component in the transmission system of armoured face conveyor (AFC). In this paper, true stress-true strain curves of materials of the sprocket and the ring chain are obtained by computing the data of static tensile test. A simplified symmetric finite element contact model is established based on the nonlinear finite element software ABAQUS. Stress field and torsional stiffness coefficient of the sprocket are calculated according to loads and boundary conditions. Simulation results are in good accordance with the test results. The finite element model and the simulation results provide useful guidance for design and test of the sprocket. Meanwhile, accurate torsional stiffness coefficient of the sprocket is obtained for simulation of the transmission system of AFC.
