Silos for ash,
Bottom and fly ash silos in Narva bring back good memories. This was the first time when I used nonlinear FEA in silos design. It was a great experience altogether as it allowed me to use skills learned in PhD in “real life”.
So many interesting topics intersected in this project: thermal loads in silos, plastic stability and a 3 cone hopper with some funny plastic behavior.
All this led to a great design that I still fondly remember.
