For the design of bulk material silos, a detailed knowledge of the flow properties of bulk materials is necessary. If the dynamic processes in a silo and, above all, the transition from a stationary bulk material to a flowing bulk material, the designer faces difficult challenges. In the following work a new measuring method is presented, with which it is possible to measure important information about the behavior of bulk goods in silos.
