Parametric Finite Element Analysis on Key Parts of the Conveyor
Belt conveyors are the major equipments for bulk material transportation.This paper analyses the static and dynamic behaviours of the belt, and establishes the dynamic elastic modulus. By analyzing the characteristics of the Kelvin and Maxwell viscoelastic model, the former is selected as the conveyor belt model as it can more realistically reflect the mechanical characteristics of the conveyor system. This paper introduces the development of the belt conveyor, and analyzes the current research situation at home and abroad.
