responses were informative and helpful.
My problem this week is regarding the design of a steel hopper for a grain
dump pit. I want to check the design to see if additional supports or
stiffeners are required. I have equations (Rankine's theory) for determining
the normal force on the hopper bottom. The pitch of the hopper bottom is
10:12 (approx. 40 degrees). The material will probably be 7 or 8 ga. steel
sheet. The hopper will be supported at the bottom by a conveyor and at the
top by a concrete wall.
Any thoughts on useful references or other information to help determine need
for intermediate supports or stiffening?
