Silos are used to store granular solids, liquids, and metal ores. Due to high height to diameter ratios, silos are prone to failure due to buckling. This research work aims to assess the buckling strength of steel silos containing liquid (water). The silo is designed as per ASME codes for the requirements given in problem, and then validated the design for safety by performing linear and nonlinear analysis using software ANSYS. Water stored in silo acts as loading on surfaces of it. Hence in addition to above analyses, hydrostatic analysis is also performed on silo.
