Could anybody me how to calculate the thickness of corrugated steel sheets for grain silo
Bin design gets pretty complicated. The pressures exerted by stored grain are sometimes modelled as if they were a fluid, but it's little better than a guess. Check the ASAE web site <http://www.asae.org/> for applicable design codes. Click on 'technical library' and search on 'bins and silos.' <http://www.erpt.org/992q/tard-00.htm> has a comprehensive paper on bin design.
