Modelling the thickness of ice in slurry tanks

Modelling the thickness of ice in slurry tanks

Canadian Agricultural Engineering 37(4): 327-333

In Quebec, concrete tanks storing swine manure have been observed to deteriorate prematurely. Ice loads and thermal gradient through the tank wall have been identified as causal. Ice pressure load has been the object of very few studies. Position, ice thickness, pressure, and temperature are the most important load factors. This study proposes a model that predicts ice thickness in manure tank according to the average temperatures of December, January, and February.
