Abstract

Different analytical and standard approaches to silos are described. A slice method, the German standard DIN 1055 and Eurocode 1 are shortly summarized. The determination methods of bulk solids’ properties according to Eurocode 1 are given. Finally, a calculation algorithm of cohesive arches across hoppers according to Drescher is depicted.

Keywords

Friction Angle Wall Pressure Internal Friction Angle Direct Shear Tester Wall Friction 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
