Elimination of Deep Foundations
The superior strength of the dome silo provides a high tolerance for differential settlement. In many cases deep foundation requirements are minimized or eliminated.
Dome Technology’s expertise in geotechnical engineering and advanced finite element analysis, coupled with decades of construction experience, ensure the structural stability of the dome silo and its integrated ring foundation system. The dome silo ring foundation and reinforced concrete dome shell provide exceptional rigidity that distributes loading uniformly over irregular subsurface conditions, thus providing a high tolerance for differential settlement. Dome Technology consistently saves customers millions of dollars by drastically reducing or eliminating the need for deep foundations.
