Reinforced extended ring foundations for top-unloading concrete tower silos



Reinforced extended ring foundations for top-unloading concrete tower silos



Canadian Agricultural Engineering 21(2): 111-116



Weak soils require special foundation designs to spread the load of tall tower silos over sufficient soil-bearing area to maintain an adequate safety factor. Eccentricity of silo wall loads and soil reaction pressures frequently cause the annular ring footing to rotate and break into sectors.
