  Missile silo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The missile silo was first suggested in the 1950s in the United Kingdom as a suitable housing for Blue Streak missiles.
Only one test missile silo was built in the UK at RAF Spadeadam and with the cancellation of the Blue Streak project in 1960 the UK ICBM nuclear missile capability was transferred to submarines.
The Atlas was fueled in the silo and then had to be raised to the surface for launch.

 Silo design
The silo designer, assuming a mass flow discharge of a fluidized product that may typify fly ash as well, was also taking into account a wall friction angle creating a structural vertical transfer of weight to the cylinder wall of the silo.
The silo designer must be knowledgeable regarding inserts involved in a properly constructed split or multi-sectional storage silo and their effect in relation to pressure peaks resulting from erratic flow properties.
Other considerations are the structural ramifications of a multi-compartment silo, which may be full on one side and completely or partially empty on the other(s) under high wind loads or in severe weather conditions, such as tornado (vacuum conditions) or hurricane (severe uplift and external wind-load pressures).

 IRMI - ERM and September 11
For historical reasons, the industry tends to think and manage in "silos." What a disaster such as the terrorist attack of September 11 reveals is that these silos can be simultaneously shaken by a common event, creating the "cross-silo" effect.
The effect, particularly for multi-line carriers, was profound because of the interdependencies among the risks—interdependencies that insurers don't normally think about or account for.
In both cases, what is important is the preexisting ability to model the effects of simultaneous and complex interrelationships among such elements as underwriting results, cash flows, asset values, and the company's own stock value so that the company is ready when quick decisions need to be made.

 TSPR Clear Creek ISD - Chapter 1
The district's current operational plans, such as the facilities plan and the technology plan, suffer from the "silo effect." The silo effect refers to plans that are not integrated with one another and the budget.
The silo effect also indicates that the written plans are intended to be stand alones, so they are not bound together as part of a single comprehensive document.
In addition, CCISD is currently relying upon its District Improvement Plan to serve as the district strategic plan.
