Finite Element Analysis for Belt Conveyor's Drum
A new finite element analysis method of driver drum is introduced in this paper, conveyor belt is introduced in analysis model, and the effect that bearing imposed on drum is treated as spherical constraints. The drum is analyzed under the coalition of assembly load and ultimate torque load using the paper method as well as the traditional method, and the results between two methods are compared. The analysis results show that the danger points are on the hub inner and the weld seam between spoke and hub, the comparison shows that the analysis results by the paper described method are smaller than the traditional method results by 10%. The load imposing ways described in this paper are more consistent with the actual work process, and the analysis results are more accurate and reliable.
