英文摘要: When a silo is being filled with the granular material containing a range of particle sizes, larger particles tend to flow towards the silo wall while the smaller particles accumulate near the centre of the silo. Shelled corn was used in this study. This work encompasses the first part, where the distribution of broken corn and foreign material (BCFM) was investigated in a small scale silo filled from a central filling point (CFP). Factors that were varied included initial BCFM, volume flow rate of material and fill pipe diameter. A new approach was developed to ensure accurate sampling in the radial and vertical direction in the silo. The results indicated that the distribution of fine material became more uniform at lower grain depths and for increasing initial BCFM, volume flow rate...
