Guide for the Analysis, Design, and Construction of Elevated Concrete and Composite Steel-Concrete Water Storage Tanks
|Publication Date:||1 June 2016|
Recommendations supplement the general requirements for reinforced concrete and prestressed concrete design and construction given in ACI 318, ACI 301, ACI 350, and ACI 350.5. Design and construction recommendations include materials, determination of structural loads, design of concrete elements including foundations, design of concrete or steel tank components, construction requirements, geotechnical requirements, appurtenances, and accessories. Materials, design, fabrication, and construction of the steel vessel of composite steel-concrete tanks are addressed by applicable sections of AWWA D100.
Design and construction recommendations are presented for the types of elevated concrete and composite steelconcrete water storage tanks shown in Fig. 1.2a and 1.2b. The elevated concrete tank consists of a post-tensioned concrete vessel on a cast-in-place concrete pedestal. The composite steel-concrete tank consists of a steel vessel on a cast-in-place concrete pedestal.
This guide may be used in whole or part for other tank configurations; however, the designer should determine the suitability of such use for other configurations and details.
