AbstractA concrete stave silo 7.32 m in diameter, 24.28 m high, with foundations designed for the allowable bearing capacity of the marine clays at the site, was instrumented with settelment pins, earth pressure cells and piezometers. The performance of the structure was monitored from 1973 to 1978. The predicted and observed settlements were compared and the distribution of the pressures under the silo was measured. Up to 50% of the silage load was transmitted by friction through the walls to the foundations.
