Abstract:
This report presents recommendations for structural design, materials, and construction of concrete tanks, reservoirs, and other structures commonly used in water and wastewater treatment works where dense, impermeable concrete with high resistance to chemical attack is required. Special emphasis is placed on a structural design which minimizes the possibility of cracking and accommodates vibrating equipment and other special loads. Design and spacing of joints are considered. Proportioning of concrete, placement, curing, and protection against chemicals are also described. Information on seismic design is included.
