    © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015. Gravity granular flows of cohesionless materials emerging from bottom exits and from lateral exit holes, both in vertical bins, and from face walls in tilted bins were modeled and measured. The models are based on continuum mechanics, whereas friction and gravity are the main involved forces. Measurements of the granular mass flow rates were obtained from temporal measurements of weights by using force sensors. In vertical and tilted bins the face wall thicknesses were considered in the governing correlations. Measurements are in good agreement with the theoretical predictions.
