Abstract:Presents some of the considerations and assumptions of ACI Committee 313 in developing the provisions of the "Recommended Practice for the Design and Construction of Concrete Bins, Silos, and Bunkers for Storing Granular Materials." It also provides suggested methods for calculating crack width, through-the-wall temperture gradient due to hot stored materials and the effect of eccentric discharge. Comments on specific provisions of the recommended practice are made using the corresponding chapter and section numbrs of the recommended practice. A list of selected references is given at the end of the commentary.
