Elevated cylindrical metal silos are often supported on a ring beam which rests on discrete column supports. The ring beam plays an important role in redistributing the majority of the discrete forces from the column supports into a more uniform stress state in the cylindrical wall, which is necessary to reduce the potential for buckling of the shell wall.
