Storage - Silo Design & Engineering

NEW SILO ENGINEERING & DESIGN PROCESS

There are many factors to consider when designing a silo including the materials to be stored and equipment and material handling requirements.

The design of the silo walls are generally straight forward but the internal cones and floors require considerable engineering expertise and experience. Current technology often requires inverted concrete cones and Commonwealth has developed a precast system with external concrete stitching to achieve a finished cone in the minimum time period. Steel cones require particular experience to achieve an economic design which would give consideration to fabrication and installation.
