We would sincerely like to express our thanks to Professor Michael Rotter for all his help in this project. It is his wide range of knowledge and experience in this topic that has helped us to understand the need to study the pressures exerted on silo walls during the filling, storage and discharge of granular bulk solids.

We would also like to express our thanks to Dr. Zhijun Zhong for his help in explaining the test procedure involved in silo wall pressure measurements in the structures lab.
