Title: Design of Conical Base Slab for Circular Concrete Tanks
Author(s): Annabel L. Tong
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 198-203
Keywords: bendinq moments; concrete slabs; conic shells; shear properties; shells (structural forms) ; stress analysis; structural design; tanks (containers].
Abstract:This paper analyzes the bending moments and shear forces in a conical slab which is commonly used as a base of circular settling tanks in water pollution control plants. The analysis is based on linear thin shell theory and the results are presented in a form that can be followed readily by designers of such slabs.
