Abstract

In this paper we present some results obtained from a cylindrical model silo designed by using the well known Janssen asymptotic expression of bin pressure. Two kinds of tests have been conducted.

- one by varying the outlet diameter, (d)

- the other by varying the hopper slope, Ɵ

All these variation are done to obtain man-flow in the model. The electric responses of the sbain gages give some information on the deformations of the transition zone. Close to the hopper and reveal the existence of a peak stress responsible of the destruction of many industrial silos cited in the specialized literature.

Experimental Determination of Stresses on a Model Silo
