Keywords:   Wheat, Loads, Friction, Bins, Eccentric discharge

A series of tests involving eccentric discharge from a model bin were conducted using bin wall surfaces of smooth galvanized steel, corrugated galvanized steel, and abrasive paper simulating a concrete bin wall. Bin load asymmetry resulting from eccentric discharge was found to decrease with increasing value of friction coefficient of the bin wall.
