ECCENTRIC DISCHARGE SILO WALL LOADS.

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • The wall loads exerted by the contents in rigid silos with eccentric discharge will be systematically analyzed using the solids flow principles developed for symmetrical flow channels. Here, particular attention will be devoted to predicting the in-plane force generated in the silo walls, together with the normal pressures acting on the same during silo discharge. The evaluation procedure suggested in this paper is what the authors consider will provide the most satisfactory and consistent values for the wall loads in a wide range of eccentric discharge silo situations.
