Calculation of wear on conveyor belts

Is there any relationship that I can use in parallel to computer analysis (DEM) where I extract shear stress data from the belt and estimate wear for a certain period of useful life?

This would be a very complex exercise. Apart from defining the loading method you should also define the life expectancy so you can confidently quantify the replacement order date. Again that would require the advance booking of a splicing crew.

In short, there is no point in your quest. Just buy the best suitable belt you can afford & take a deep breath.

Conveyor belt life is like horse racing: only the last furlong counts for the owner.
