Measurements of wall pressures have been carried out in a 1.5-m-dia mass flow bunker with three materials. The high flow pressures generated at the top of the cone fluctuate and are unevenly distributed. High pressures occur in the cylinder above irregularities. The results are compared with those found with various prediction methods.
