Published by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, St. Joseph, Michigan

ASAE  ASAE EP413.2   February  2010

Keywords: Bins, Capacities, Grain

1 Purpose and scope

1.1 The purpose of this Standard is to define the method for determining the volumetric capacity and the calculated storage capacity of cylindrical grain bins. This method assumes that the bins are centrically filled.

1.2 The purpose is also to establish an industry standard for the estimation of compaction factors for all cylindrical bins.
