Analysis & Design Software for Silos and Storage Tanks

3D Finite Element Analysis and Design

Structural engineering FEA software RFEM is the basis of a modular software system. RFEM is used to define structures, materials, and loads for planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells and members. The program also allows you to create combined structures as well as model solid and contact elements.

    Actions on Silos According to EN 1991-4

    Silos are used as large containers for storing bulk materials such as agricultural products or source materials as well as intermediates of industrial production. Structural engineering of such structures requires a precise knowledge of the stresses due to particulate solids in the building structure. The standard EN 1991‑4 ‘Actions on Silos and Tanks’ [1] provides general principles and requirements for determining these actions.
