This paper presents the results of an analysis of the linear wear of the inside of a pipe transporting loose materials. The aim is to present a mathematical model simulating the abrasive wear of individual elements of a transport pipe, depending on the volume of transported material. The model presented in this paper was developed based on the measurement data obtained from a dismantled transport system used in a railway handling terminal.
