Abstract:
Reviews available literature on the analysis and design of concrete settling tanks and similar structures. Recommended procedures for design are discussed in the light of modern research. New criteria for code design provisions based on crack widths and crack spacing are suggested. A comparison is made of the concrete tank with a conventional structure in areas where special provisions are needed.
