Force on wall

Submitted by jagan1mohan on Sat, 07/04/2020 - 02:45

Hello Friends, Greetings.

Lets say we have a cuboid container defined by 6 primitive planes oriented along X-Y-Z axes, filled with spherical particles to a certain height, gravity acting along Z. When this system is at rest,

1. How can we calculate net downward force acting on bottom wall (as a single value)? This must be equal to weight of all particles combined.
2. Is it possible to get force field on this bottom wall? This must be uniform, vectors pointing downwards (assuming flat or constant hFill) and sum of all field must be equal to weight of all particles.

Thank you,
