    In order to sufficiently reclaim bulk freight from waste tips, various models of retrieval and reloading devices are employed. Among them: the bucket wheel reclaimer. The central mantle piece of this construction is the bucket wheel itself, which is used to reload the bulk material from the stock pile. It moves on specific rails and is further outfitted with a remove- and lowerable jib boom. With the aid of concrete data, such a bucket wheel is to be assembled in form of a one-disk bucket wheel. In terms of manufacture, a one-disk wheel needs to be designed, which is supposed to be built out of two welded, tapered steel sheets. Primary aim of this diploma work is to establish a sufficient, optimal weight optimization of the bucket wheel and its components through calculations and computer simulations. With this the processing of the shaft and bucket wheel muff, including the fusion of both components are to be examined. Further, criteria include cost of manufacture, required area of construction, transport, installation and dismounting of the bucket wheel. In hindsight to these criteria and known weight afflictions, various samples shall be reviewed in order to distinguish and built the most efficient.
