In recent years many reinforced concrete grain silos have suffered serious damage either from inadequate foundations, or from incorrect reinforcement of bin walls, or from faulty structural work. The author discusses several instances of damaged grain silos and reasons for the failures, and gives methods of assuming correct bin loads and of designing reinforced concrete grain silos to prevent such failures.
