- Current research into the design of storage vessels and silos for handling and processing compressible, stringy type bulk materials is reviewed. Design equations for mass-flow are presented in which the variation in bulk density with major consolidation stress and variation in wall friction with normal wall pressure taken into account. The solution of these equations provides the means of determining the distribution of vertical and major consolidation stresses throughout silos of specified geometry. The use of mass-flow hopper inserts to limit, for process requirements, consolidation stresses and bulk density and improving air permeation is demonstrated.
