© 2022 Elsevier LtdA new analytical procedure encompassing a finite element model approach to perform seismic analysis of a bulk solid-silo-embedded foundation/soil system, as presented here, not only allows for more efficiency in terms of practical design but also successfully accounts for a more thorough evaluation of the behavioral aspects of system. A parametric study was performed on both slender and squat silos with embedded foundations for four different soil types. The research presented here confirms both the efficiency and realiabilty of this new analystical procedure in determining the seismic behavior of silos with embedded foundations.
