RCC Silo Structure, Indian Seismic Zones


RCC Silos are used by a spacious range of industries to store bulk solids in quantities ranging from a few tones to hundreds or thousands of tones. The term silo includes all forms of particulate solids storage structure that might otherwise be referred to as a bin, hopper, grain tank or bunker. Silos are very demanding in cement industries. Hence RCC silos are widely used for storage of granular materials as they are an ideal structural material for the building of permanent bulk-storage facilities for dry granular like fillings. Initially concrete storage units are economical in design and reasonable in cost. Concrete can offer the protection to the stored materials, requires little maintenance, is aesthetically pleasing, and is relatively free of certain structural hazards such as buckling or denting. In this project, we are designing the RCC silo situated in all seismic zones with the help of structural software Staad Pro. The design concept include, providing all dimensions of structural component based on trial and error method. The Analysis of silo, using Equivalent lateral force method and study the performance of structure located in all seismic regions in term of Comparison of different models of concrete silo for earthquake such as nodal displacement, stress and vertical or horizontal pressure on walls etc. The Presentation of the results is in tabular and graphical look. This method is carried out for volume of 180 m3. All the designs have been based on the recommendations of I.S 4995 -1974 (part 1&2) and I.S 456 – 2000 codes, Based on these designs, that dimension of silos shows least amount of concrete and steel. These findings will be useful for the designers of silos.
