In an effort to decrease the price-performance ratio in the agricultural industry for material handling, and recognising that the hopper-discharge chute forms a part of most such handling systems, optimum performance of this component becomes a necessity. To achieve this goal it is necessary to first obtain a detailed knowledge of its dynamic characteristics.
