ABSTRACT
The vertical wall and floor loads exerted by soft red winter wheat on flat-floor model bins are compared for cylindrical and conical shape bins. The change in the inclination of the bin wall from 0° to 6° with respect to the vertical direction significantly decreased all measured and calculated load parameters.
