The test results described are a portion of a current comprehensive series of investigations. No attempt is made to produce the values for wall frictional and bottom loads, which were measured simultaneously with horizontal pressure. Data obtained from the measurements prove that, although standard specifications on the calculation of silo loads are incorrect in some details, adherence to these loading data will not damage silos.
