Abstract:
Circular concrete bins for the storage of material have been used in Europe for the past thirty years, chiefly for the storage of grain. Engineers in this country were loath to accept this type of construction, but the ravages of fire upon the wooden grain elevators and storage houses forced them to adopt a more fire-resisting building material. Steel, tile reinforced with steel rods and brick reinforced with steel rods have all been used in the construction of storage bins, but the advent of sliding forms gave reinforced concrete a chance to forge ahead of the other types of construction. Its lower cost and better fire-resistant qualities have by now practically eliminated other forms of storage bins
