Design of Liquid-Containing Concrete Structures for Earthquake Forces

Item Code: EB219


Date: 2002

Description: This publication contains comprehensive information on the design and detailing
requirements for concrete tanks subjected to earthquake forces. The earthquake forces are
computed in accordance with a variety of codes, including the 2000 International Building Code.
Requirements of ACI 350.3/350.3R-01, Seismic Design of Liquid-Containing Concrete Structures
and Commentary, are also explained and illustrated with worked-out design examples for
rectangular and circular tanks.

Table of Contents:
1. Introduction
2. General
3. Earthquake Design Loads
4. Modeling and Analysis
5. Design of Components
6. Detailing
7. Example 1 - Rectangular Tank
8. Example 2 - Circular Tank

Rectangular Concrete Tanks


Item Code: IS003
Date: 1998

Description: This document showcases analysis and design for rectangular tanks containing
fluids. Describes the analysis procedure and provides vastly expanded design tables of
coefficients for moments, shears, and deflections due to uniform and triangular loads.

Presents analysis methods for rectangular tanks containing fluids. Describes the analysis
procedure and gives tables of coefficients for moments, shears, and deflections due to uniform
and triangular loads. Support conditions considered are free and hinged tops as well as hinged
and fixed bases. Also covered is durability, minimum reinforcement, crack control, formwork
considerations, and multi-cell tanks. Comprehensive design examples illustrate the use of the
tables and design aids.

Circular Concrete Tanks Without Prestressing


Item Code: IS072
Date: 1992

Description: Presents analysis methods for circular tanks containing fluids. Tables of
coefficients are provided for bending moments and ring tensions due to various loading
conditions. Provisions are provided for wall thickness, reinforcement and crack controls
based on ACI 318-89 Building Code Requirements for Reinforced Concrete and ACI 350-89
Environmental Engineering Concrete Structures. Also given are design guidelines for roof
slabs and base slabs. Effect of variation in wall thickness and temperature variation in tank
walls is also considered. A comprehensive design example illustrates the use of the design
aids.
