Re: Salt Lateral Bin Pressures

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] Bowles' Foundation Analysis and Design has a portion of a chapter dealing with the lateral pressure exerted on silos and bins.  Doesn't list any properties for salt however it does indicate the general analysis.

Try "Useful Information on the Design of Steel Bins & Silos" by John Buzek,
published in 1989 by AISI and the Steel Plate Fabricator's Association. This
has densities and angle of repose information in the appendix for just about
any material you can think of that is stored in silos.

Listings for salt are as follows:

Material                Bulk density    Angle of repose

Salt, course    45-55                   30-45
Salt (1/8)              50
Salt, dry course        45-50
Salt, fine              70-80

I think that's ACI, not AISC.
