Low Rolling Resistance (LRR) conveyor systems are generally preferred over traditional conveyors because of better overall efficiency lesser energy consumption required to operate. In this work, the design development and analysis path in the process of downscaling the size of an existent LRR test rig to a compact, portable and desktop-sized model is presented. Simulation has been developed using SolidWorks and finite element analysis is conducted using ANSYS to obtain the deformation, stress and strain of each part of the new design.
