I have to design a bin with copper ore. I can calculate the static loads as per Gaylord & Gaylord. And Gaylord and other references even mention how to design the overall support structure for seismic. However, nothing is mentioned regarding the design of the bin wall to account for material slamming against the wall during an earthquake.
Is this just ignored? Does anyone know of a reference that addresses this?
