    Rising Conveyor Structural Design

    Rising Conveyor Structural Design

    The rising coal conveyor at stage 1 of the Hazelwood Power Station provides coal to 25% of the boiler house. DPS were engaged to provide a structural analysis of this 150m long, up to 45m high structure to provide a solution to observed deflections.
    The aims were to determine the mechanism for observed significant vertical deflections. A recommended concept for modification has been outlined and a report was produced, including all analyses results and Investigate 40m high coal conveyor truss for observed large deflections and recommend solution using SPACE GASS structural computer software. Rather than costly truss modifications we designed intermediate low cost trestles to reduce loads.
