Silos are the structures I enjoy the most. Even though I have designed a substantial amount of them, few deserve a special mention. This is one of those silos: a typical solution I optimized for one of my Customers.
Kiesa project involved designing several conveyer supporting structures with additional supports and towers. It gave me occasion to not only to do interesting design, but also to manage a team in a relatively complex design.
Another project with dust explosion. This time we have analyzed a square filter.
Pipeline in China was my first design in Asia, so this is also a milestone in my career.
This is a relatively small hopper. The difficulty was in loads, as it is designed to be “buried” under 8m of gravel.
Designing ISO containers is definitely fun. This was the first time I did something according to DNV, which proved to be a great experience.
This was the first time when I used nonlinear FEA in silos design. It was a great experience altogether as it allowed me to use skills learned in PhD in “real life”.
