THE governing equations for predicting the vertical force exerted on subjects trapped in an enveloping tlow funnel and experimental data from vertical forces and inflow velocities are presented. These tests cover a range of grains, subjects, and tlow rates. Results will aid the development of rescue techniques for persons involved in grain tlow accidents.
