Be aware that the script DELETES ALL previous content in the currently opened model file.
This script creates a silo from steel plate elements and also a support structure for the silo from beam elements. Additionally, surface loads are also applied to the inside of the silo surface representing the hydrostatic pressure caused by a fluid inside. Dimensions of the silo and support structure, plate thicknesses, materials, radial and height wise plate division of the silo, shell finite element mesh size and fluid density for the hydrostatic load can be controlled through input dialogues after the start of the script run.

Current version: 1.0 (release date: 2021.10.27.)
