The DomeSilo’s superior strength provides a high tolerance for differential settlement. One reason for this inherent strength is that the reinforced-concrete dome roof and vertical wall are monolithic. There are no joints or beams forming the roof, so forces from differential settlement are often easily tolerated. This allows for a very efficient overall foundation system.
Dome Technology’s expertise in geotechnical engineering and advanced finite element analysis ensure the structural stability of the DomeSilo. Dome Technology consistently saves customers money by drastically reducing or eliminating the need for deep foundations.
