Standard Practice for Design and Construction of Concrete Silos and Stacking Tubes for Storing Granular Materials (ACI 313-97)

Description ilo failures have alerted design engineers to the danger ofdesigning silos for only static pressures due to stored mate-rial at rest. Those failures have inspired wide-spreadresearch into the variations of pressures and flow of mate-rials. The research thus far has established beyond doubt thatpressures during withdrawal may be significantly higher1-4 orsignificantly lower than those …
