    Belt Conveyor Analysis & Design

    Dear Anand:

    You can receive a good tutorial on the subject from a study using the BELtSTAT computer software program @: You can download the DEMO package free of charge. The HELP menu can give you background information. The program is based on CEMA noted by others. In many areas, it goes beyond CEMA.

    Many large engineering companies and manufacturing companies use it. Its foundations were developed in 1966. The foundations are continuing to be upgraded. It incorporates technology beyond the published standards. Look at the list of major installations and their complexities on our website to get a feel of its scope.

    Give feedback on your thoughts. Explore and comment on future enhancements that provoke your interest.

    With Regards,

  9. Dear Anand,

    The book 'Engineering Science and Application Design for Belt Conveyors' authored by me, could be a good guide for you and should answer most of your questions. It is a 650 pages book with 360 figures and numerous solved examples for practical needs.
    You may get in touch with me, in case you are interested in buying it.
    The post from Dr. R H Wohlbier also mentions about this book.

  10. Conveyor belt design

    Mr. Anand,
    CEMA, as suggested by Mr.Gary is good, but if you go by soft ware, then you cannot learn any thing.So I suggest that you go through the following:
    1) Material handling .. by Spivakovaski
    2)IS: 11592 or ISO 5048
    3)Book by our member Mr. I.G.Mulani
    Learn first from book & then to save time use soft ware.
