%X In this study pressure drop of bin containing corn as granular porous material with two common inlet duct arrangements (H, F) for a laboratory silage was studied by using experimental method. Higher pressure was obtained for the F arrangement compare to the H arrangement. The Ergun equation was fitted on the pressure drop of empirical data and the correction coefficients of modified Ergun equation for both H and F arrangements were determined. The coefficient of determination, mean root square error and mean relative error were used as indices to investigate the goodness of fitness between the empirical data and Ergun equation, and the equation had good fitness on the empirical data. The numerical simulation was carried out by finite element simulation of COMSOL Multiphysics v5.3 software using the modified Ergun equation. Moreover, distribution of velocity and flow lines within the bin was also presented.
