Dust has negative effects on the environmental conditions, human health as well as industrial equipment and processes. In this thesis, the transfer point of a belt conveyor as a bulk material handling system with a very high potential place for dust liberation is studied. This study is conducted based on experimental and numerical methods as reliable tools in studying the dust liberation from bulk material handling systems.
