Three-Dimensional Finite Element Analysis of Steel Silo
In this paper strength and wall stress of a steel silo were calculated in designing by using 3-D finite element method. According to the analysis result, intensity inspection and structure optimization were executed, which could provide the reference basis for construction design.
