20 TRUCK CAPACITY

21 Manufacturer's specification sheets will list both struck and heaped capacities. - material measured straight across the top of the body. STRUCK

22 TRUCK CAPACITY - based on a 2:1 slope above hauler bodies. HEAPED 2 1

23 BUCKET CAPACITY

24 WEIGHT LIMIT Check load weight against gravimetric capacity of the haul unit. Max. gross weight 150,000 lb Operating weight (empty) 68,900 lb Therefore the max load is 81,100 lb

25 WEIGHT LIMIT Tires are about 35% of a truck’s operating cost. Overload a truck and you abuse the tires.

26 The Terex Titan, the world’s largest truck at 350-ton was designed around the tires. CAT is working on a 340-ton truck.

27 WEIGHT LIMIT Check load weight against gravimetric capacity Note the difference. Sideboards

28 WEIGHT LIMIT Check load weight against gravimetric capacity of the haul unit.

29 STEP 2 LOAD TIME LOAD TIME = Excavator cycle time X No. of bucket loads

30 STEP 2 LOAD TIME

31 STEP 3 HAUL TIME

32 STEP 4 RETURN TIME

33 STEP 5 DUMP TIME This will depend on the type of hauling unit. Rear dumps must be spotted before dumping. Total dump time can exceed 2 minutes.

34 STEP 5 DUMP TIME Bottom dump units dump while moving.

35 STEP 5 DUMP TIME PROJECT SPECIFIC FACTORS Is the dump area smooth permitting safe maneuvering to dump.

36 STEP 5 DUMP TIME PROJECT SPECIFIC FACTORS Is the dump area crowded with support equipment.

37 STEP 5 DUMP TIME PROJECT SPECIFIC FACTORS Do loaded haul units have the right-of-away. Grader Roller Water truck

38 STEP 5 DUMP TIME Turn and Dump times (min.) See p. 295

39 STEP 6 TRUCK CYCLE TIME CYCLE TIME = Load Time + Haul Time + Haul Time + Dump Time + Return Time + Return Time

40 STEP 7 NUMBER OF TRUCKS REQUIRED TRUCKS REQUIRED =

41 STEP 7 NUMBER OF TRUCKS REQUIRED Trucks Production

42 STEP 7 NUMBER OF TRUCKS REQUIRED Trucks Production Loader potential Truck potential Match point

43 STEP 7 NUMBER OF TRUCKS REQUIRED The match point typically does not coincide with an even number of trucks.

44 STEP 8 EFFICIENCY Three critical factors to consider: Bunching Operator Equipment availability

45 STEP 8 EFFICIENCY Bunching: With a perfect loader - hauler match the effect of bunching is a 10 to 20% loss. If there are extra haulers the effect is reduced as there is always a line of trucks waiting to be loaded.

46 STEP 8 MISMATCH & BUNCHING EFFICIENCY Trucks Production

47 STEP 8 EFFICIENCY Operator: Longer hauling distances usually results in better operator efficiency. Operator efficiency increases as haul distance increases to about 8,000 ft. after which it remains constant.

48 STEP 8 OPERATOR EFFICIENCY Trucks Production

49 STEP 8 EFFICIENCY Equipment availability: When the loading tool breaks down, the production drops to zero.

50 STEP 9 PRODUCTION The Loader will control production if at least one extra truck is used. PRODUCTION (LOADER) =

51 STEP 9 PRODUCTION Trucks control production if fewer trucks are used. PRODUCTION (TRUCK) =

52 Ten 25 ton/18 cy rear dump trucks with low pressure tires are available to haul a rock dirt/gravel mixture. The wheel loader being used has a 4.25 cy bucket. TRUCK PRODUCTION PRACTICAL EXERCISE

53 The haul and return, over poorly maintained earth, is 3 miles. It is a down hill grade of 1.25% going to the dump area. Net truck weight is 36,860 lb. Working hour efficiency is 55 minutes. PRACTICAL EXERCISE

54 STEP 1 BUCKET LOADS NUMBER OF BUCKET LOADS REQUIRED TO FILL THE TRUCK. Truck capacity = 18 cy Dirt/gravel mixture Fill Factor wheel loader ( Table 8.6 ) %, use average 110% Loader bucket capacity = 4.25 X 1.1 = cy

55 STEP 1 BUCKET LOADS NUMBER OF BUCKET LOADS REQUIRED TO FILL THE TRUCK. Bucket loads must be an integer No. Therefore use either 3 or 4 bucket loads.

56 STEP 1 BUCKET LOADS If 3 bucket loads: Truck volume = 3 X = 14 LCY If 4 bucket loads: Truck volume = 18 LCY and the excess spills off.

57 STEP 1 BUCKET LOADS Check load weight against gravimetric capacity of truck. Dirt/gravel mixture Table 4.3 2,600 lb/LCY

58 STEP 1 CHECK LOAD WEIGHT 3 bucket load: 4 bucket load:

59 STEP 2 LOAD TIME LOAD TIME = Bucket cycle time X No. of bucket loads 4.25 cy bucket Table 8.9 Bucket cycle time sec use average 31.5 sec (0.524 min)

60 STEP 2 LOAD TIME 3 bucket load: 3 X = 1.58 min. 4 bucket load: 4 X = 2.10 min.

61 STEP 3 HAUL TIME DUMP 1.25% GRADE Poorly maintained earth

62 STEP 3 HAUL TIME Grade resistance load to dump: -1.25% Total Resistance = (-1.25%) = 3.0% or 60 lb/ ton Poorly Maintained Earth Haul Road Rolling resistance (Table 5.1) lb/ton, use 85 lb/ton or 4.25%

63 STEP 3 HAUL TIME Net truck weight 36,860 lb or tons 3 bucket load tons Gross wt. = = tons

64 STEP 3 HAUL TIME Net truck weight 36,860 lb or tons 4 bucket load tons Gross wt. = = tons

65 STEP 3 HAUL TIME 3 bucket load Gross wt ton Rimpull = 60 lb/ton X ton = 2,200 lb 4 bucket load Gross wt ton Rimpull = 60 lb/ton X ton = 2,510 lb

67 STEP 3 HAUL TIME 3 bucket load 35 mph 4 bucket load 22 mph 3 bucket, min 4 bucket, min

68 STEP 4 RETURN TIME Net truck weight 36,860 lb or tons

69 STEP 4 RETURN TIME Grade resistance load to dump 1.25% Total Resistance = % = 5.5% or 110 lb/ton Rimpull = 110 lb/ton X ton = 2,030 lb Poorly Maintained Earth Haul Road Rolling resistance, 4.25%

71 STEP 3 RETURN TIME Return speed 35 mph = min

72 STEP 5 DUMP TIME Rear Dump Trucks must be spotted before dumping, Total dump time averages about 2 minutes. Use 2.0 minutes

73 STEP 6 TRUCK CYCLE TIME 3 bucket loads Load time min + Haul time min + Dump time min + Return time min CYCLE TIME = min

74 STEP 6 TRUCK CYCLE TIME 4 bucket loads Load time min + Haul time min + Dump time min + Return time min CYCLE TIME = min

75 STEP 7 TRUCKS REQUIRED 3 bucket loads Trucks required = 9.8 Must be an integer number therefore 10 trucks

76 STEP 7 TRUCKS REQUIRED 4 bucket loads Trucks required = 9.3 Must be an integer number therefore 10 trucks

77 STEP 8 EFFICIENCY Working hour efficiency is 55 minutes.

78 STEP 9 PRODUCTION 3 bucket loads The loader will control production if at least one extra truck is used. PRODUCTION (LOADER) =

79 STEP 9 PRODUCTION 4 bucket loads The loader will control production if at least one extra truck is used. PRODUCTION (LOADER) =

80 STEP 9 PRODUCTION 3 bucket loads 10 trucks 488 LCY/hr 4 bucket loads 10 trucks 471 LCY/hr

81 STEP 9 PRODUCTION 3 bucket loads If only 8 trucks are AVAILABLE the trucks control production. PRODUCTION (TRUCK) =

82 STEP 9 PRODUCTION 4 bucket loads If only 8 trucks are AVAILABLE the trucks control production. PRODUCTION (TRUCK) =

83 STEP 9 PRODUCTION

84 While matching the fleet to the required production is important, doing it at a minimum $/unit of material moved is usually the goal.

85 STEP 9 PRODUCTION COST Tons/ hour Cost/ ton $ As you add trucks

86 STEP 9 PRODUCTION COST Tons/ hour Cost/ ton $ Different size trucks
