Hi There,

The Bin will contain Chrome ore , the size of dust up to 20 mm chips. Wall friction does play a role, thus the rule of thumb is to get as close to 60 degrees as possible for the material to overcome the wall friction.The fine material loves to stick together while the chips have little to no flow problems. It does not behave like a fluid. In our current Bin design, two of the wall angles are 40 degrees. With multiple other problems of the current bin , the material ratholes. I have researched and designed this Bin shape according to all critical spesifications, but I am unsure if I sumulated to load correctly.
