Abstract

This paper presents some findings in the area of the design of rotating disc salt spreading equipment as used for winter road maintenance. In the main the paper is primarily concerned with establishing quantitative performance data for typical rotating disc spreaders and uses this to suggest certain performance enhancing design modifications. The research and design activities were confined to the disc and immediate ancillary equipment, and were deliberately generalized so that the results could be applied to a range of vehicles. Some operational improvements as a result of the modifications reported here were observed on a test vehicle
