An analytical solution for the stress function at the wall of a converging channel

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Presented is an analytical solution for the stress function S(α) at the wall of a mass flow hopper. Having an explicit expression for S(α) makes it possible to obtain analytical expressions for such parameters as the normal stress at the wall and the flow factors for arching, in a converging channel. Contours of νw/γB and ff determined from these expressions compare favourably with those obtained by Jenike using numerical solutions. © 1976.
