BUCKET ELEVATOR CALCULATION. T1: Belt tension (N): Safety factor: Belt width (mm) 6.6.2. Belt type assessment For the assessment of a belt type, initially the belt stress T1 can be approximately estimated. T1 = FU + FSt + TV + TT FSt = H 9.81 ( m 'B + m 'G ) TV = c2 k A FU FSt TT TT = GT 9.81/ 2 Where: FSt: Slope resistance (N) TV: Pre-Tension (N) TT
