ON THE STRENGTH PROBLEM IN CHAIN ELEMENTS OVERLOADED DURING MAINTENANCE OF BIO-FUEL CONVEYOR
Keywords:Strength, chain conveyor, bio-fuel
AbstractSmall deviations in maintenance conditions of chains influence on various cases of deformations that usually are not mentioned in the chain maintenance guide. In the case of small distortion of chain axis the chain is loaded by transversal load and chain elements incur a bending moment. These additional loads increase stress value on area of chain axle and it comes close to the value of ultimate stress. In this article the original evaluation methodology of geometrical and mechanical characteristics is presented according to chain loading kinetics. Also this article covers related measurement and calculation results that were used as tools for verification of presented methodology.
