Thank you for helping keep Eng-Tips Forums free from inappropriate posts. Wc represents the resultant of the sloshing convective fluid pressures. ACI committee documents are intended for the use of individuals who are competent to evaluate the significance and limitations of its content and recommendations and who will accept responsibility for the application of the material it contains.

Individuals interested in the activities of ACI are encouraged to become a member. The work of ACI is conducted by individual ACI members and through volunteer committees composed of both members and non-members.

This code presents new material as well as modified portions of the ACI Building Code that are applicable to environmental engineering concrete structures.

The quality and testing of materials used in the construction are covered by reference to the appropriate standard specifications.

ACI – Some Comments and Observations – ACI (concrete) Code Issues – Eng-Tips

Because the roof is free to slide on top of the wall, the shear transfer will take place over that portion of the circumference where the lip overhang comes into contact with the wall. The rapid fluctuations of the force Pi mean that the bending moments and stresses in the wall of a rectangular tank also vary rapidly the effect cai not like a constant force acting on the wall.

If uplift develops on the heel side, then anchor cables must be provided. Register now while it’s still free!


When using preformed slots, vertical bending moments induced in the wall by shear should be considered. Among the subjects covered are: Are you an Engineering professional? It is the function of the commentary to fill this need. Type 2—Circular tanks Type 2.

Because ACI M is clde as a legal document, it may be adopted by reference in a general building code or in regulations governing the design and construction of environmental engineering concrete structures. Combine the computed moments using the square root of the sum of the squares method as in the same section.

Where applicable, the lateral forces due to the dynamic earth and groundwater pressures against the buried portion of the walls shall be computed in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 8. The differences between the UBC and the IBC seismic provisions as used in this Standard are primarily due to differences in the definition of design ground motions and the construction of the corresponding design response spectra as explained below.

Using the seismic zone determined in Step 1, find the zone factor Z from Table I; 3. Vertical component of ground motion—Compute the natural period of vibration of the vertical liquid motion Tv in accordance axi Section 9. When comparing these provisions frequency of the tank; with other documents defining cde forces at allowable 2. Superimposed on these lateral unbalanced forces shall be the axisymmetric lateral hydrodynamic force codf from the hydrodynamic pressure pvy acting on the tank wall.

It is the responsibility of the user of this document to establish health and safety practices appropriate to the specific circumstances involved with its use. The dynamic vode of pedestal-mounted The following commentary is adapted from Housner This standard includes the response modification factor; stress levels for example, the Uniform Building Code 3.

In general, the wall-footing interface should have reinforcement designed to transmit these shears through cod joint.

Note that mass is equal to weight divided by the acceleration due to gravity. Based on the natural periods determined in Step 10 and the design spectral response acceleration values derived in Step 2, calcu- late the corresponding seismic response coefficients Ci and Cc Eq.


Loadings include normal dead and live loads and vibrating equipment or hydrodynamic forces. Remember me on this computer. The forces Pi and Pc act independently and simultaneously on the tank.

If you don’t care about leaks and I’m not saying it isn’t a legitimate approach for storm wateryou can go less. It could also be argued that for walls that are exposed in this locale, considering the limited 24 hour detention time available of the water in the tank to saturate the concrete walls, and considering the fact that most of the major storms in this area that would highly charge the tanks do not coincide with the time of extended freezing conditions, the freezing of the wall in a saturated state is highly unlikely.

The radial shear attains its maximum value at points on the tank wall oriented zero and degrees to the ground motion and should be determined using cylindrical shell theory and the tank dimensions.

Establish the design depth of the stored liquid HLthe wall height Hw, and the tank length or diameter, Acci or D, respectively; 2. References to much of the research data referred to in preparing the code are given for those who wish to study certain requirements in greater detail.
