Abstract

Eccentric discharge imposes non-symmetrical bin wall and floor loads. A series of tests were conducted for different eccentric discharge orifice locations. Floor loads during eccentric discharge of 0.61 m diameter model bin were smaller on the side nearest the discharge orifice than on the opposite side. The horizontal pressure distribution around the circumference of the bin wall depends on the height of grain above the floor.
