Field Measurements of Tensile Forces on a Spherical Dome Sector Caused by Internal Load of a Granular Product in Storage

by Jack L. Brunk, Dome Systems, Inc, Goodland, United States,



Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Spatial, Lattice and Tension Structures

Abstract:

Using a number of existing equations developed application to silos, bins, and hoppers, the horizontal load resulting from the stored product can be calculated. In this paper, the physical elements of the dome, the product fill, and reclaim equipment for the first project are discussed.
