to quote an example. the influence of the fill and discharge eccentricities on the fill and discharge processes. the distribution of discharge pressures along the silo wall changes with time. An exact prediction of the prevailing mean pressure. this is to be done using a symmetric load component and an unsymmetric reference surface load. the influence of the silo shape and size on the type of the flow profile and those that are related to the time-dependant discharge and fill pressures are all to be taken into consideration NOTE 1 The magnitude and the distribution of the rated loads depend upon the silo structure.DIN 1055-6:2005-03 4 DESCRIPTION AND CLASSIFICATION OF SILOS 4. In case of large eccentricities the loads are to be described using a pressure distribution curve. the properties of the stored bulk material and the flow profiles that arise during emptying of the silo.and discharge.eccentricities being marginal. (2) Ambiguities related to the flow profiles. Thus. The inherent differences in the properties of the different bulk materials that are stored and the simplifications in the load models lead to variations between the silo loads that actually appear and the design loads (calculated loads) according to sections 6 and 7. given the present level of knowledge.1 (1) Description of Actions in Silos The actions on silos are to be estimated with regard to the silo structure. the material parameters of the bulk materials and the flow profiles which build up during emptying. 38 . with fill. its divergence and its temporal variability is not possible.
