Presents recommendations for structural design, materials, and construction of concrete tanks, reservoirs, and other structures commonly used in water and waste 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 accomodates vibrating equipment and other special loads. Information on design of tanks to resist sesmic loads is included. Proportioning of concrete, placement, curing, and protection against chemicals are also described. Design and spacing of joints receive special attention.
