This paper presents a continuum model of the flow of granular material during filling of a silo, using a viscoplastic constitutive relation based on the Drucker–Prager plasticity yield function. The performed simulations demonstrate the ability of the model to realistically represent complex features of granular flows during filling processes, such as heap formation and non-zero inclination angle of the bulk material–air interface. In addition, micro-mechanical parametrizations which account for particle size segregation are incorporated into the model. It is found that numerical predictions of segregation phenomena during filling of a binary granular mixture agree well with experimental results. Further numerical tests indicate the capability of the model to cope successfully with complex operations involving granular mixtures.
