Vibrating floor for and method of unloading residual grain from a grain storage enclosure

An apparatus, system, and method for unloading residual particulate matter such as grain from a storage enclosure such as a grain bin, silo, or building having at least one floor opening. In one embodiment, a corrugated metal overfloor is added spaced above the bin floor by a framework of generally horizontal beams and plural downwardly depending legs. The frame work supports the overflooring at a slight (e.g. 1 or 2 degrees) slope from the bin sidewall towards the floor opening. Vibration generators are distributed across the overflooring and can be operated to generate vibration in the overflooring to influence residual particulate towards the floor opening.
