Calculation of the rope capacity for the bucket ladder winches of the gold dredger
Wu Wanzhao (Changchun Gold Design Institute of M. M.I)
The object of this article is to introduce calculating process about the formulas of the rope capacity for the bucket ladder winches of the gold dredger. The formulas are applicable to the dredger with both single and double booms, and have been compiled into the designing systems of winches as subprogram. After several practical calculations in the dredger design, the results are correct and accorded with the demands of the actual project perfectly.
