Care must be taken in placing the steel concrete reinforcement. Locate the horizontal reinforcement by marking on one or two of the 4 by 4-inch upright structure the scaffolding the location of all the rods; then there will be no guessing whether or not the reinforcement is in the correct position. Before mixing the concrete, bend the horizontal rods into rings so that they will go in the middle of the wall. Lap the ends 2 feet. To find the 1enth of 04 to go around a silo, add to the inside diameter the thickness of one wall i4 multiply this sum by 3 1/7. This gives the circumference of the center in of the wall. If the length of this circumference is not too long for one board, add 2 feet for the lap.
If two rods are necessary, add 2 feet for each lap; it is, make every rod 2 feet longer than is required for the actual circumference. By placing the inside form of the silo first; the reinforcement may set in advance of the concreting, the horizontal rods being tied to the verticals by soft wire about 1/16 inch diameter. This is a better way than to ace the horizontal rods as the concrete is being laid. The table gives the stance apart of the horizontal rods at the bottom of the silo. Increase the acing slightly toward the top so that at the top the rods are double the stance apart they are at the bottom. Mix the concrete, using one part Portland cement, two part, clean sand and four parts broken stone or screened gravel. For mixing of the concrete, see page 24. Make the mixture of sloppy consistency about like heavy cream, place it in the concrete forms and ram lightly to distribute the mortar and drive out air bubbles. Before removing the concrete forms, clean off the top of the wall with a stiff wire brush or an old horse curry comb, and raise the concrete forms for the next filling. Before placing the new concrete, wet thoroughly the surface and spread a 1/2-inch layer of mortar mixed about one part Portland cement to one part sand and then place the concrete. Care must be (The dimensions of these silos are as follows: Concrete Footing, 4 feet below ground; 20 feet inside diameter; 24 feet above ground; 12-inch walls reinforced vertically with 1-inch rods 4 feet and horizontally with 1/2-inch rods 3 feet. There were 443 bags of granulated Portland cement used.) used in tamping the concrete, not to push the rods to one or the other side c the form, but to keep them in the center of the wall.
As soon as the concrete forms are removed roughen the inside surface by scraping off the skin of cement with a wire brush or a brick; as soon as the walls c the silo are completed wet the inside surface thoroughly with clean water, an plaster it with not over a x/i6-inch coat of one part Portland Cement to one part clean, coarse sand, screened through a fine screen. Protect the surface from the sun and wet twice a day for seven days. It is very important to have this inside surface perfectly smooth, for when the ensilage settles after being packed, any roughness of the walls is liable to cause the cornstalks to catch and prevent them settling evenly. The ensilage around the air space thus formed becomes moldy and must be thrown away. This same thing occurs where the concrete is laid with too little water. The concrete then is porous and sucks out the moisture from the ensilage, forming a dry skin of material next to the wall. The outside surface of the silo is generally good enough if it is rubbed down with a board or a brick, using water with it, immediately after taking off the concrete forms while the concrete is fairly soft so as to take off the joint ridges and leave a uniform surface. By removing the concrete forms the next day after laying the concrete, it is possible then to entirely remove the skin of cement, leaving the sand and stone exposed enough to give a very pleasing finish.
