Abstract : Silos made of thin walled steel panels are susceptible to buckling. In operation they are subject to skin friction, internal pressure, and wind loads. During construction only wind loads have to be regarded. In order to determine the stationary wind loads acting upon large circular cylindrical silos during construction and operation a number of wind tunnel tests were performed. The results of the tests are summarized in the paper. (Author)
