Abstract

The particular rheological behaviour of paddy rice and husked rice, that is readily determined in laboratory using the conventional triaxial apparatus, provided a realistic interpretation of an unusual case history occurred on a large rice storage steel silo Subsequently 11 suggested minor modifications, but quite sufficient to ensure the facility availability at different stages of rice storage.

Abnormal Wall Movements of a Steel Silo Caused by Paddy Rice Storage

St. Louis, Missouri

The particular rheological behaviour of paddy rice and husked rice, that is readily determined in laboratory using the conventional triaxial apparatus, provided a realistic interpretation of an unusual case history occurred on a large rice storage steel silo Subsequently 11 suggested minor modifications, but quite sufficient to ensure the facility availability at different stages of rice storage.
