Abstract:
Concrete tanks are generally considered a mature design science yet in some aspects development and refinement is ongoing. In the design and build sector there is the relentless pursuit of economy, while with design work for local authorities there is more emphasis on longevity and minimisation of maintenance. In this paper, a selection of concrete tank design and construction techniques are described; some to improve construction economy, but the majority described minimise the life cycle cost of the concrete tanks. Some of the techniques described have an element of novelty and all have been proven in actual field applications.
