Detail Proof

## As = area of surcharge , sq. in ( area ABC )

Ab = base trapezoidal area , sq. in (area AFGC)
l = length , smaller edge of trapezoidal area , inch
l 1 = length , larger edge of trapezoidal area , inch
j = height of trapezoidal area , inch
m = slant length of trapezoidal area , inch
r = radius of surcharge angle, inch
f = horizontal projection of slant side of trapezoid , inch
c = edge distance , edge of material to edge of belt ,inch
b = width of belt , inch

## Standard edge distance c = 0.055 b + 0.9 inch

Ab = 0.5 (l + l 1 ) x j
b =l +2xm +2Xc
l1 = l + 2 x f
f = m x cos b
l = 0.371 x b +0.25
c = 0.055 x b + 0.9
Solving , m = 0.2595 x b -1.025
j = m x sin b
2
Area of whole sector (ABCD) = x r x 2 x a /360
2
Area of triangle (AECD) = r x 0.5 x sin ( 2 a)
2
Surcharge area , As = r x { x a / 180 - 0.5 x sin ( 2 a) }
r = 0.5 x l 1 / sin a
Total area in sq. ft. , At = ( Ab + As ) / 144
