Abstract:
The behavior of liquid containing structures (LCS) subjected to seismic excitations is reviewed. The major parameters affecting the response of concrete circular tanks for LCS are discussed. Existing codes aud standards related to seismic design of LCS are reviewed. With the aid of a design example, results of the various design standards are compared. The effects of earthquake load on the behavior of reinforced concrete (RC) tanks are also investigated through a detailed example.
