## Auger Length Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Auger Length.

AL = (E + 1/2*D)*1.4

- Where AL is the Auger Length (ft)
- E is the eve height of the bin (ft)
- D is the bin diameter (ft)

To calculate auger length, add one half the bin diameter to the eve height, then multiply by the result by 1.4.

## How to Calculate Auger Length?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Auger Length.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the eve height of the bin (ft).
- The eve height of the bin (ft) is given as: 5.

- Next, determine the bin diameter (ft).
- The bin diameter (ft) is provided as: 6.

- Finally, calculate the Auger Length using the equation above:

AL = (E + 1/2*D)*1.4 = (ft)

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

AL = (5 + 1/2*6)*1.4 = 11.2 ft

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

eve height of the bin (ft) = 7

bin diameter (ft) = 8

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

AL = (E + 1/2*D)*1.4** = ?**
