I am in middle of designing such a foundation wall for the Contech Storage Dome.  I got the reactions for all the loadings from the storage building people.

Subject: salt storage building - design pressure

I have been asked to design a salt storage building and would like to know what those experienced with this work use for the design pressure for the salt and a surcharge for a loader pushing material around in the building.  The concrete retaining walls will extend 15' above grade.
Thanks in advance.
