A study of granular solids in silos with and without an insert
MetadataShow full item record
Granular flow in silos and pressures acting on the silo walls have been studied for over a century. While some aspects such as mass flow silos in relatively simple geometries are now reasonably well understood, many challenges still remain in silo design. The aim of this thesis is to study the flow and pressure of granular solids in silos with and without insert, and to further the understanding of granular solids behaviour by computational and experimental investigations.
