Development of supportive template for the design process of silos
2021 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

The purpose of the thesis is to support IBC International in its method of designing the silos. Designing of Silos involves the calculations of pressures acting on the silos due to the loads. It involves creating a template, which is like software for making design procedures easier and convenient for the engineers of IBC International. The main focus of the template was Eurocode for the Silos, and all of the calculations, which are used for making the template, which has been taken from Eurocode. Furthermore, a detailed FEM analysis has been performed on different parameters for finding out the stresses concerning different pressure values. All the results of simulations have been compiled as a database which is then used for recommending the thickness value of Silo and Hoppers. This template will guide the designer towards accurate results by recommending the nearly correct parameters. This parameter will give insight to the designers for the accurate simulations hence saving time for the company with decreased lead times.
