Keywords: Liquid-containing structures, hydrostatic and seismic loading

The objective of this session is to present the latest analytical procedures, experimental findings, and construction practice issues related to liquid-containing structures (LCS). In these structures, issues related to crack and leakage control criteria under hydrostatic and seismic loading are of main concern. An improved understanding of the behavior of these types of structures is necessary to ensuresafe and cost-effective standards. As such, simplified design procedures based on performance criteria can be developed to design and construct LCS efficiently and economically.
