In this topical sprouting and industrializing era. India is methodically growing up in Steel industry. Meanwhile, India is moving astoundingly towards economic growth in steel. The competitions in India are growing up day by day, in rising industries like Ceramics , Cement , Textiles industry etc., for the storage of solid raw materials. After so many research work carried out, it is still necessary to modify and alter the requirement of storing raw materials in a modified way. "Silos" is a special Shallow or Deep Structure, usually it has no distinctive or proper definition and can be defined usually by saying that it is used for storing "Solid bulks" materials. Furthermore, in other simple way it may be termed as Bins, Bunkers, Silos, or Tanks. "Silos" may be constructed of Steel or RCC (Reinforced cement concrete).These structures becomes important as it requires throughout the year in "Material handling" and "Food processing" plants for storing granular or fine materials i.e., {grains (in use for agriculture purpose),or fermented feed known as "Silage"}.
