Containment Structures brings together contributions from some of the leading researchers and practising engineers in the field of silo and containment structures, and is derived from a specially invited colloquium on the subject. As well as case studies, it includes reviews dealing with safety and risk in the design and operation of these structures. It brings together experts from a wide range of disciplines involved in silos, from many different industries and backgrounds, and helps to promote debate about acceptable levels of risk in this significant field of structural engineering. "Structural failures are rare, except for silos" - J.G.M. Woods . "The rate of failures in silo storage structures has been higher than for any other structural form for many decades, and continues to be high with over 1000 failures per year in North America alone in the 1980's" - J.M. Rotter . specially invited colloquium on the subject. As well as case studies, it includes reviews dealing with safety and risk in design and operation of these structures. It will help to bring together the wide range of disciplines involved in silos, from many different industries and backgrounds, and will help to promote debate about acceptable levels of risk in this significant field of structural engineering.
