An example of a belt conveyor design is also developed, based on the proposed representation platform and the extended search technique. Finally, a discussion is given of the most significant results emerging from the proposed approach.

Short belt conveyors require relatively more power to overcome the resistance to friction than long ones and therefore an adjustment is made to calculate the effective tension. L C = L + 70 m L C = L + 230 ft Therefore, the belt length correction is: C = L c L
REPRESENTATION OF TRAJECTORY OF MATERIAL The graphical representation of trajectory of material indicates the actual path which will be followed by the material after it leaves the discharge pulley. The trajectory of the material depends upon the configuration of the belt conveyor and is graphically represented in the manner laid down in A and B.
There are two main types of belt conveyors used; trough a belt conveyor and a sidewall belt conveyor. A trough belt conveyor is the most common type of conveyor and most cost effective. It uses a flat belt that has idlers that trough the belt. This type of belt conveyor is typically used in longer conveyors due to price savings.
