Seismic acceleration of H2O

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am evaluating an existing concrete water reservoir tank with 
cantilevered walls and no lid.  What seismic load will be induced on the 
cantilevered walls by the water, assuming the tank is half full?
  
Assuming the structure is located above grade, what shape does the 
water seismic load diagram take?
Any references?

Thanks,
Steve Campbell, P.E.
