Abstract:This report presents wall design procedures for deep, cast-in-place, concrete bins and silos with a height equal to at least twice the diameter; free-standing or clustered; cylindrical, rectangular, or irregular in shape. These bins are in-tended to hold common granular solids such as cement, flour, sugar, grain, fertilizer, dry chemicals, coal, and similar materials. Allowable unit stresses, formulas for obtaining wall loads, design procedures, and determination of minimum wall thicknesses are given.
