Calculate the mass of the tank shell wall Ww, and roof Wr. The chapter and section numbering of the code are followed throughout the commentary. 350-001 Jerry Parnes Roger H. Typically, the distribution of forces and wall reactions in circular tanks will be similar to that shown in Fig.

In a pseudo-static analysis: Because ACI is written as a legal document, it may be adopted by reference in a general building code or in regulations governing the design and 350-0 of environmental engineering concrete structures.

Failure to provide a means for shear transfer around the cir- cumference may result in sliding of the wall. Walls parallel to the direction of the earthquake force shall be analyzed as afi walls subjected to the in- plane forces computed in 5.

Axi general, the wall-footing interface should have reinforce- ment designed to transmit these shears through the joint.

Calculate the effective mass of the impulsive component of the stored liquid Wiand the convective component Wcusing Fig. Chemical attack; coatings; concrete durability; concrete finishing fresh concrete ; concrete slabs, crack width, and spacing; cracking fracturing ; environmental engineering; inspection; joints junctions ; joint sealers; liquid; patching; permeability Date: With any one of the tank types covered under this report, the General configuration rectangular or circular floor may be a membrane-type slab, a raft foundation, or a Wall-base joint type fixed, hinged, or xci structural slab supported on piles.


Accordingly, the basic scope, format, and environmental concrete structures. For tank Types 2. Exposures include concentrated chemicals, alternate wetting and drying, and freezing and thawing of saturated concrete. C of soft to medium-stiff clay but not more than 40 ft 1. This Commentary is intended for the use of individuals who are ACI D mm of soft clay characterized by a shear wave 2. Typical earthquake force distributions in slab action 5. Where a site-specific response spectrum is constructed in accordance with 4.

Emphasis is given to the explanation of provisions that may be unfamiliar to some code users. Using the frequency values determined in Steps 3 and 4, calculate the corresponding natural periods of vibration, Ti and Tc [Eq.

Because the impulsive and convective 4. Alternatively, the wall may be located in a preformed slot in the ring beam footing. Note that the damping of the sloshing water is small, approximately 0. Downward pressures on the neo- prene bearing pads of free base circular tanks caused by overturning moments should be considered. In rectangular tanks, calculate the stresses in the wall due to the impulsive and convective pressures, depending on the structural system considered 6. Atomic Energy Commission, This code presents new material as well acci modified portions of the ACI Building Code that are applicable to environmental engineering concrete structures.


The duration of the fluctuations is 10 to 15 s for 0. International Concrete Abstracts Portal.

The duration of sloshing can be For all tanks, 20 to 40 s for earthquakes of magnitude 6. S National Bureau of Standards, Monograph, In locations where the soil properties are not known in suffi- cient detail to determine the soil profile, Type C shall be used.

When using preformed slots, vertical bending moments induced in the wall by shear should be considered. Skip to main content. Calculate the hydrodynamic pressure phy using Eq. This model has been Fig. Loadings include normal dead and live loads and vibrating equipment or hydrodynamic forces.

Compute the vertical distribution of the impulsive and convective force components in accordance with Chapter 5. Wi moves with the tank walls as they respond to the ground shaking the 9.

Doyle Bryant Mather 350-001 F. Walls perpendicular to the direction of the earthquake force shall be analyzed as slabs subjected to the hori- zontal pressures computed in 5. The maximum reaction force will be given by: The horizontal distribution of the dynamic pressure across the tank diameter D may be assumed as follows: Compute the dynamic lateral forces [Eq.

Factor Z Table 4 a represents the maximum effective peak ground acceleration for the site, while C is a period- dependent spectral-amplification factor.
