Abstract: Concrete flat bottom circular silos are often deployed to store material in various industries like cement plants, power plants, oil and gas industry etc. Silos are special structures subjected to many different unconventional loading conditions, which result in unusual failure modes. Failure of a silo can be devastating as it can result in loss of the container, contamination of the material it contains, loss of material, cleanup, replacement costs, environmental damage, and possible injury or loss of life. The best design of silo has helped in safe structure. In present paper an industrial silo analyzed and designed according to the Indian standards (IS 4995) and also by referring Euro code (EN 1998 -4 1999 & EN 1991-4 2006) and ACI code (ACI 313). In this study, a 450 cum capacity flat bottom silo design & analysis.
Keywords: Flat bottom silo, pressure, seismic action, IS code, EURO code, ACI code
