Wood chip container

The task was to design and constructively adapt the design of a wood chip container to current standards.

Both the installation (vertical) and the transport of the container (horizontal) have to be considered. The loads caused by the bulk material (Eurocode 1) are therefore relevant, as are transport loads when being transported by  truck (acceleration loads).

The additional challenge of the container lies in the polycarbonate side panels, which allow drying under daylight. The design of the welds of the structure (Eurocode 3) was also part of the project.
