### Conveyor Belt Calculations - Brighthub Engineering

Calculations include conveyor capacity, belt speed, conveyor height and length, mass of idlers and idler spacing, belt tension, load due to belt, inclination angle of the conveyor, coefficient of friction, power at the drive pulley, starting belt tension, acceleration of the conveyor belt, and belt breaking strength, all with descriptions of ...

### Conveyor Belt Equations

The modulus of elasticity can be used to calculate the tension force it exerts under a specific extension, where . T = tension force. λ = modulus of elasticity. A = cross-sectional area. x = extension. l = length (m)
