Abstract:
This work presents an analytical technique for the determination of stresses in mine winding drums based on classical theories for thin shells and flat plates. Comparison between experimental results and predictions applying the technique showed good agreement demonstrating that it can provide design engineers with a powerful tool for the stress analysis of cylindrical mine winding drums. The flexibility of the technique in allowing the examination of different winding drum configurations also makes it a means of rapidly determining the effect of parameter changes at the design stage.
