Literature survey, Report TT.1154, Transport Engineering and Logistics.

In this report three different methods of determining the dynamic forces in a conveyor belt, during its starting phase, are analysed.
The rigid body method is the most simple one, but is less accurate.
The electric modelling and finite element methods are more accurate, but more complicated.
The rigid body method can be used if TArel < 5.
