Collapse Reasons Analysis of a Large Steel Silo
Through the analysis of the collapse reasons of a large steel silo, results show that the main reasons for causing this accident are the design factors, containing horizontal pressure calculation, loads combination, critical stability stress calculation and so on. Temperature stress, storage mode and discharge method, initial imperfections of steel silos are the subordinate reasons and can not be ignored.
