This paper describes design and load analysis of steel silo 8000 tons. They are cement storage silo, tower silo, bunker silo, bags silo, bins, sand and salt silo and fabric silo. Tower silos are differentiated as concrete silo and steel silo. Steel silo is analyzed for more economic and safety than other silos. Horizontal pressure, vertical pressure and frictional wall pressure are calculated and got the required thickness is 8.4412 mm. But in CP Live Stock Company, the thickness of silo wall is 6 mm and lowers than the requirement. Therefore, stiffeners are fixed for safety. There are 78 stiffeners and wall thickness is 5.54 mm required. The total vertical stress is 162.66 kN m2 and allowable stress for foundation is 167.43 kN m2. The stress of foundation is greater than total vertical stress. Therefore, design is satisfied. The wind load and wind pressure at different heights are also calculated and based on wind speed of 44 m s. Wind stress is much less than the wall strength. Therefore, wind stress is neglected and design is satisfied.
