Concrete panels in new silage pits.

Im looking to start and build some new silage pits in a completely new area of the farm.

I want to go 4m high with the walls to try and avoid over filling and to get value for money out of the concrete pad.

Building with conventional steel legs and concrete panels so that i can possibly put a roof on it one day using the steels.

When silage pits are next to each other what's the best way to fit panels, do i need 2 sets for the one wall, ie one set either side of the steel to give a smooth edge to run a long?

Or is shuttering the centre walls going to be the only sensible choice?

On with the same now, I wish someone had a standard set of calcs for panel clamps.
I.e. for 3m high of 30% DM silage rolled with 10 tonne, min steel is ............. Foundations based on density of subsoil.

Anyway, one of our old clamps has a central wall using 203 x 203 77kg UC's with 200mm panels slotted in. Tidy job....
