    Dimensions of Grain Bunker

    One of the important factor to consider when your designing a grain bunker is the height of the grain bunker. The height of the grain bunker is limited by the stacking height capability of your grain handling equipment. Each grain type will form a heap related to its repose angle. Repose angles for each type grains are as follows

     

    Wheat- Repose angle of 23° from horizontal
    Barley, Sorghum, Chickpea, Rice, Soya Bean, Rye- Repose angle of 26° from horizontal
    Oats- Repose angle of 30° with respect to horizontal
