Steel Bin Retaining Walls

Steel Bin Retaining Walls

(OP)
I would appreciate it if anyone could recommend references (books/articles) for the design of steel bin crib walls.

Also, please see the attached picture. It shows the buckled flange of a Type II bin wall vertical connector. Has anyone seen this sort of thing before? I'm not sure of the height of the wall but I believe it's more than 8 M. I would appreciate any comments.

RE: Steel Bin Retaining Walls

While I have not been involved with crib walls, a quick view of a Google search shows numerous crib wall failures and other installations, Frequently for stability and possibly due to the weak bearing capability of that type wall, they generally are built with a lean back that greatly can reduce the horizontal pressures and accordingly reduce the hang-up of material inside the bin. The configure of the metal quite obviously has weak bearing capability.
