GRAIN SILO WALL LOADS.

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The main deficiency in the design of silos to date has been to disregard the storage and flow behavior of the stored material. For instance the wall friction, arising from the ability of bulk solids to exert static shear stresses generates considerable axial forces in the silo walls, the presence of which requires proper structural treatment. The neglect of flow overpressures generated by the change in the wall support in the developing flow zone is also alarming. These deficiencies suggest that the proper and complete design of silos is only possible when a full understanding of all silo wall loads is gained.
