Collapse of conical granular columns

This paper experimentally analyzes the collapse of conical granular columns made out of non-cohesive granular materials. Dimensionless run-out lengths were found, as a function of the aspect ratio a, similar to those occurring in the collapse of cylindrical columns, although in the case of conical columns of high aspect ration, at the end of the collapse, a layer of grains that rotates around the cone axis appears and it affects the final profiles of the mounds.

Acoustic radiation patterns of the silo music phenomenon

In this work, we apply the theory of radiation and reception of acoustic waves in the analysis of the acoustic contributions of the silo music phenomenon. The length portion of the silo where the silo music phenomenon occurs is considered a continuous line source. The continuous line source modeled as a simple acoustic source permits the analysis of the acoustic far field, interpreting the polar graphics of the beam patterns of the acoustic contributions. We propose to apply this technique in the silo design to diminish adverse acoustic effects during the discharge process of granular materials. Additionally, we present calculations of the sound pressure level of the silo music phenomenon.

Granular flow through vertical slots: analysis of a general formula

Currently, very little is known about reliable phenomelogical correlations to estimate the gravity-driven mass flow rate, of dry non-cohesive granular material, outflowing from thin thickness slots in vertical sidewalls of rectangular silos. Here, we validate a simple and general formula that fits pretty well data published elsewhere, including the cases of vertically and horizontally elongated slots.
