Select an importance factor I from Table 4.

The sloshing pressures on the tank walls result from the fluid motion associated with the wave oscillation. In circular xode, calculate the hoop stresses due to the impulsive and convective pressures and due to the vertical acceleration Section 6. The force Pi and its associated pressures primarily act to stress the tank wall, whereas Pc acts primarily to uplift the tank wall.

Compute the vertical amplification factor Ct in accordance with Section 9. Appears on pages s: The following equations are provided as examples for the special case of a wall of uniform thickness.

In this model, Cods represents the resultant effect of the impulsive seismic pressures on the tank walls.

The Eng-Tips staff will check this out and take appropriate action. Bogdan Gautam Ckde Nicholas A. Cost implication is minimal. 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. I deal with the more traditional ACI structures water and wastewater treatment vessels and I didn’t realize that stormwater detention now fell under that.

Explanations of the impulsive and convective pressures Pi and Pc are contained in Section R9. Using the zone factor Z and the soil profile designation from Steps 2 and 3, find the seismic coefficient Ca from Table Q and seismic coefficient Cv from Table R; 5.

The period of oscillation of the sloshing depends on the ratio of fluid depth to tank diameter, and is usually several seconds. The controlling table is 7. The duration of the fluctuations is 10 to 15 seconds for earth- quakes of magnitude 6. 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 full and complete returned product will be accepted if returned within 60 days of receipt and in salable condition. Serviceability requirements include liquid-tightness or gas-tightness.

Individuals interested in the activities of ACI are encouraged to become a member. Using the seismic zone determined in Step 1, find the zone factor Z from Table I; 3.

Note that mass is equal to weight divided by the acceleration due to gravity. This meant keep up with the frequent changes and improvements in the that these procedures should cover both aspects of seismic field of seismic hazard analysis and evaluation. ACI – Some Comments and Observations That’s the problem though, in that some reviewers are interpreting differently, increasing the steel drastically.

Skip to main content. Select the seismic zone 1 through 4 where the site is located, using the seismic zone map Fig.

Resources Digital Transformation may be defined in a number of different ways by analysts or enterprise software vendors. The minimum vertical steel is listed at.

In anchored, flexible-base, circular tanks Type 2. For explanation, refer to Housner []. By joining you are opting in to receive e-mail. Alternatively, the wall may be located in a preformed slot in the ring beam footing.

In spite of these efforts, the users of ACI documents occa- sionally find information or requirements that may be subject to more than one interpretation or may be incomplete or incorrect. The design procedures described in Chapter 4 recognize that the seismic analysis of liquid-containing structures subjected to a horizontal acceleration should include the inertia forces generated by the acceleration of the structure itself; and the hydrodynamic forces generated by the horizontal acceleration of the contained liquid.

The user must determine the applicability of all regulatory limitations before applying the document and must comply with all applicable laws and regula- tions, including but not limited to, United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration OSHA health and safety standards.

Criteria for liquid-tightness testing may aaci found in For partially buried tanks, the Ri value may be linearly interpolated between that shown for tanks on grade and for buried tanks. When comparing these provisions frequency of the tank; with other documents defining seismic dode at allowable 2.


Register now while it’s still free! Thus, if the maximum value of Ci is used SDScalculation of the natural frequency and natural period is not required; 9. Because ACI M is written as a legal document, it may be adopted 350-006 reference in a general building code or in regulations governing the design and construction of environmental engineering concrete structures.

Using the values of Ca, Cv, and Ts, coode a design response spectrum as in Fig. To establish the scope of the new procedures consistent with the overall scope of ACI When such a fode is used, the following load combinations are permitted to be used for design instead of the ASCE load factor combinations Haroun and Sci Red Flag This Post Please let us know here why this post is inappropriate. Wc is the equivalent weight of the oscillating fluid that produces the convective pressures on the tank walls with resultant force Pc, which acts at a height of hc above the tank bottom.

Enter the email address you signed up with and we’ll email you a reset link. Where loss of liquid should expressions: ACI – Some Comments and Observations In my mind, if you’re not providing the minimum reinforcing ratios coe by ACIyou’re going to have a cracked and leaky vault.

Superimposed on these lateral unbalanced forces shall be the axisymmetric lateral hydrodynamic force resulting from the hydrodynamic pressure pvy acting on the tank wall.

In rectangular tanks, calculate the stresses in the wall due to the impulsive and convective pressures, depending on the structural system considered Section 6. Using the frequency values determined in Steps 8 and 9, calculate the corresponding natural periods of vibration Ti 350–06 Tc.

I do not feel that that is the intent of the code.
