    Question Empty Silo Design

    Looking for reference material on the design and analysis of empty silos subject to external positive and negative pressures (ie. wind); Silos in question are concrete stave and bolted steel. Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    There may be some technical papers on this subject but I think that you should contact the vendors of concrete stave silos and of bolted steel bins for the wind and other external pressures and their effect on bin design.

    If you would like to know the names of these vendors we can get these for you.
