The report describes subscale static tests of composite silo closure and closure support models as a part of the Closure Analysis and Test Study. A total of 41 tests were performed in two phases. The effect on total load capacity caused by varying a broad range of design parameters including strength and relative thicknesses of steel shell material, span-to-depth ratio, support configuration, and concrete strength were investigated. Closureclosure support combinations with ultimate load capacities ranging from 1000 psi to 23,000 psi were tested.
