1st step to design belts and scraper conveyor

1st step to design belts and scraper conveyor

1st step to design belts and scraper conveyor

Hi all

I have worked as structure engineer in telecommunication industry for 5 years.
Recently I want to change to a more interesting job, to design belts and scraper conveyor in mining industry.
Since I had no experience, I hope to get as much theory as possible first.
I have knowledge of material behavior and kinetics, and recently red Machine design by Norton Robert.

Can someone suggest some book or material focused on these belts and scraper conveyor for me?
Any reply is appreciated!

Hi Walt

Thanks for your kind reply.
Yes I did search in google and also download some papers. I just felt this material is not so system style.
But maybe I should keep on reading this and then form a better understanding of the conveyors.

This looks like a company with a lot of conveyor experience plus offers design software:

I have no affiliation.
