The deformation of a thin-walled vertical tube, filled with a liquid or a cohesionless granular material is investigated theoretically and experimentally. Experiments with an overload and without it were made with latex tubes filled with water or spherical glass beads and the results were compared with the theoretical profile derived from the Janssen model. The results suggest that the soft elastic tubes could provide a simple and convenient means to investigate the forces that arise in different materials.
