Title: Determination of Minimum Wall Thickness and Temperature Steel in
Circular Concrete Silos
Author(s): Sargis S. Safarian and Ernest C. Harris
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 539-547
Keywords: cracking (fracturing) ; granular materials; hoops; reinforced concrete; silos; structural design; temperature; thermal stresses; thickness;walls .
Abstract:Presents a method for calculating the minimum thickness of conventionally reinforced circular silo walls. It also includes a method for calculating the additional hoop reinforcement necessitated by thermal stresses caused by hot granular materials stored in a silo and recommendations for vertical reinforcement. A numerical example illustrates the use of formulas, tables, and curves.
