Temporary Tank Footing Design Based on ACI 318-05

Temporary Tank Footing Design Based on ACI 318-05 There are several types of tanks, e.g., above-ground, flat-bottomed, cylindrical tanks for the storage of refrigerated liquefied gases, petroleum, etc., steel or concrete silos for the storage of coke, coal, grains, etc., steel, aluminium, concrete or FRP tanks including elevated tanks for the storage of water, spherical tanks (pressure vessels) for the storage of high pressure liquefied gases, and under-ground tanks for the storage of water and oil.

The trend in recent years is for larger tanks, and as such the seismic design for these larger storage tanks has become more important in terms of safety and the environmental impact on society as a whole.
