In order to achieve a better understanding of the fundamental aspects of materials handling by a conveyor system, a model system is being constructed. Among the major problems to be dealt with are those which result from scaling down from the full size unit. A statistical experimental design has been set up to evaluate the actions and interactions between the variables. This should lead to a minimum amount of experimental tests. A number of physical properties of a limestone sample obtained from a tunnel boring machine have been run and reported.
