Silo Foundation According to the Modulus of Compressibility Method
The use of the modulus of compressibility method for slab calculations is illustrated based on the example of a silo surface foundation. The four silo cells transmit their loads via nine columns to the 0.8-m-thick square foundation slab that rests on the layered subsoil.
