This paper analyzes stresses in a link of a slat chain conveyor loaded with rock mass. Tensometric data and results from numerical simulation with Finite Element Method (FEM) are used. The tensometric measurements are performed in real life conditions. For numerical simulation an adequate model with FEM has been created. The adequacy of the model is confirmed by the comparison of the experimental and numerical results. The factor of safety used in the design of the conveyor links is determined.
