Structural Condition Assessment of Steel Silo

Scope

FPrimeC Solutions was retained by Euromax Canada. (Client) to perform structural condition assessment of silo in its facilities located in Barrie, ON. The two steel silo structures was already out of service at the time of inspection. The main objective of the inspection and structural assessment was to evaluate the current condition of silos, and their adequacy for different loading scenarios.

Preliminary Condition Assessment of Silo

FPrimeC conducted preliminary condition assessment of silos. The project involved close-up visual inspection of corroded areas at the base of silos, marking locations in poor condition, and evaluating the effective remaining steel at the location of maximum loads.

Corroded areas were carefully examined. The areas where excessive corrosion had resulted in section loss were marked. The overall condition of the coating was evaluated using visual inspection.
