Descripción
Three full-scale steel silos were instrumented with plate-type normal pressure cells. Initial tests were carried out using wheat as stored material. During the mounting procedure of the cells was observed that local imperfections were introduced in the silo wall. The comparison between the Eurocode load model and the experimental results showed that overpressures were experimentally registered. The development of a sheared zone in the grain near to the plate of the pressure cell was initially assumed. A DEM (Discrete Element Method) analysis was performed to find out the effects that are having influence in these pressure measurements. A concentration of forces on the plate as well as the presence of a sheared zone were found to be responsible of those pressure measurements.
