Based on the rigid finite element method and multibody dynamics, a discrete model of a flexible conveyor belt considering the material viscoelasticity is established. RFE (rigid finite element) and SDE (spring damping element) are used to describe the rigidity and flexibility of a conveyor belt. The dynamic differential equations of the RFE are derived by using Lagrange’s equation of the second kind of the non-conservative system. The generalized elastic potential capacity and generalized dissipation force of the SDE are considered. The forward recursive formula is used to construct the conveyor belt model. The validity of dynamic equations of conveyor belt is verified by field test. The starting mode of the conveyor is simulated by the model. View Full-Text
