Title: Design and Construction of Circular Prestressed Concrete Structures
Author(s): ACI Committee 344
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 657-672
Keywords: admixtures; circular prestressing; concrete construction; connections;
corrosion resistance; domes (structural forms).
Abstract:This report provides recommendations for the design and construction of circular prestressed concrete structures of the type commonly used for liquid and bulk storage. These structures utilize thin cylindrical shells either of concrete or shotcrete. A thin steel diaphragm is usually incorporated in shotcreted walls. Recommendations are primarily applicable to circumferential prestressinq by wire winding but do provide guidance for the use of individual tendons. Procedures which will prevent corrosion of the prestressing elements have been emphasized. Joint details of wall-to-floor and wall-to-roof connections are described. The design and construction of dome roofs are also covered.
