Research regarding the common problems of design of the bunkers – A review
INMA National Institute of Research - Development for Machines and Installations designed to Agriculture and Food Industry, Bucharest
Understanding the behavior of granular material in a bunker not only helps to design properly and achieve the correct granular flow, but also needs the engineer to ensure that the bunker is properly designed and conducted to withstand the tasks and demands exercised during its operation. Small and shallow bunkers are commonly used in industry when free space is limited. Shallow bunkers induce the flow of the funnel, which can cause problems such as segregation and agglomeration of the material inside it, which leads to considerable damage to the final product. The design and location of a suitable power supply and an appropriate outlet is still critical and is perceived rather as a science.
The paper presents some innovative solutions related to the design, modeling and construction of solid material storage and unloading bunkers.
Key words: bunkers / seeds / design / problems
