Another excellent and very comprehensive textbook on silo design is "Design
of Steel Bins for Storage of Bulk Solids" by Gaylord and Gaylord published
by Prentice-Hall. Chapter 5, "Loads", provides excruciating detail on the
various formulae for pressures in bins and hoppers. The material is
applicable to concrete silos as well as steel.

Hope you can a) find it and b) find it useful.
