Silo maintenance: It's up to you

This article explains how to maintain your silo and spot signs of trouble to prevent failures in the silo's function and structural integrity. The article's focus on silo maintenance supplements information in the authors' previous article "Why silos fail" [Powder and Bulk Engineering, November 2001, pages 31- 43], which explains how silo failures are caused by silo design and construction errors and improper silo usage.
