Learn a step-by-step approach to designing transfers that should eliminate common pitfalls and ensure a predictable design outcome, and gain a practical guide to solving transfer chute problems
The course will look at the design of numerous types of transfer chutes, how to select the correct type, and the limitations of each design.
It will then look at the basic considerations that need to be taken into account when calculating the material trajectory, the various methodologies developed and then work through trajectory calculations using software developed by the instructor and Dr Sham Huque.
Practical aspects of transfer chute design, and things we can learn from site observations will be discussed, along with the theoretical design of all types of transfers in a step by step logical way. It will look at ways designers can take advantage in the design process from the design experience of the instructor.
