Literature survey, Report TT.1262, Transport Engineering and Logistics.

In this report a survey is presented of the literature concerning the calculation of the forces working In feeding-areas of belt-conveyors.
First the most unfavourable situation, direct vertical feeding, is discussed. In that situation a large amount of energy is required for conducting and accelerating the mass-flow, while the wear of the belt is considerable too. After that, some possibilities of indirect feeding are given, Finally a number of measures for further diminishing the wear and the required energy is mentioned.
