The sloshing increases and H cosh 3. Typically, the distribution of forces and wall reactions in circular tanks will be similar to that shown in Fig. The designer should also consider the effects of seismic forces on compo- nents outside the scope of this document, such as piping, equipment for example, clarifier mechanismsand connect- ing walkways, where vertical afi horizontal movements between adjoining structures or surrounding backfill could adversely influence the ability of the structure to function properly.
Wi moves with the tank walls as they respond to the ground shaking the 9.
/R Code Requirements for Environmental Engineering Concrete Structures and Commentary
Calculate the overall bending stresses due to the overturning moments from Step This document was replaced by The duration of the fluctuations is 10 to 15 s for 0. Walls perpendicular to the direction of the earthquake force shall be analyzed as slabs subjected to the hori- zontal pressures computed in 5. Soil Profile D need not be assumed unless the building official determines that Soil Profile D may be present at the site, or in the event that Soil Profile D is established by geotechnical data.
Accordingly, the basic scope, format, and environmental concrete structures. Kothe coefficient of lateral earth pressure at rest, shall be used in estimating the earth pressures, unless it is demonstrated by calculation that the structure deflects sufficiently to lower the coefficient to some value between Ko and Ka, the active coefficient of lat- eral earth pressure.
Where a site-specific response spectrum is constructed in accordance with 4. Superimposed on these lateral unbalanced acii shall be the axisymmetric lateral hydrodynamic force resulting from the hydrodynamic pressure phy acting on the tank wall.
Prachand Paul Zoltanetzky Robert E. Alternatively, the wall may be located in a preformed slot in the ring beam footing. They are subject to uniquely different loadings, more severe exposure conditions and more restrictive serviceability requirements than normal building structures.

This code presents new material as well as modified portions of the ACI Building Code that are applicable to environmental engineering concrete structures. For tank Types 2.
For a tank with a height-to-diameter ratio of 1: Log In Sign Up. Calculate the mass of the tank shell wall Ww, and roof Wr. The design of the wall-footing interface should take the radial shear into account. In circular tanks, calculate the hoop stresses due to the impulsive and convective pressures, and due to the vertical acceler- ation 6. In a pseudo-static analysis: In computing these pressures, recognition shall be made of the existence, or lack thereof, of ground water table.
The site factor shall be established from properly substantiated geo- technical data. Select an importance factor I from Table 4 c and a soil profile coefficient S from Table 4 b. For partially buried tanks, the Rwi value may be linearly A soil profile containing more than 20 ft mm interpolated between that shown for tanks on grade, and for buried tanks.
See also Reference 1, Section R The shears along the bottom and side joints, and the top joint in case of a roof- covered tank, shall correspond to the slab reactions. Calculate the natural period of vibration of vertical liquid motion Tv. Similarly, the terms in Eq.
Compute the dynamic lateral forces [Eq. The International Concrete Abstracts 3550-01 is an ACI led collaboration with leading technical organizations from within the international concrete industry and offers the most comprehensive collection of published concrete abstracts.
Circular tanks Aco 2. Note that ac damping of the sloshing water is small, approximately 0. S National Bureau of Standards, Monograph, If friction between the wall base and the footing, or between the wall base and the bearing pads, is insufficient to resist the earthquake shear, some form of mechanical restraint such as dowels, galva- nized steel cables, or preformed slots may be required.
In locations where the soil properties are not known in suffi- cient detail to determine the soil profile, Type C shall be used. Dynamic lateral forces 1. Failure to provide a means for shear transfer around the cir- cumference may result in sliding of the wall.
