Analysis and Design Recommendations for the Collapse of a Concrete Silo

Abstract:

Article Preview

Accidents of the cement manufacturers’ reinforced concrete silo structures frequently occurred currently in China, because of quality problems, causing enormous losses. The collapse status of a cement raw meal silo is investigated. Combined with the test results of the location and spacing of silo wall’s reinforcing bars, concrete strength, cracks and defects, the reasons for collapse of silo wall are analyzed and design recommendations for concrete silo structures are made. This can give reference to reinforced concrete silo structure design and construction in the future.
