Steve, I would suggest you should get a copy of the following ACI publication: Environmental Engineering Concrete Structures ACI Committee 350, 1989 Abstract: 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 accommodates vibrating equipment and other special loads. Information on design of tanks to resist seismic loads is included. Proportioning of concrete, placement, curing, and protection against chemicals are also described. Design and spacing of joints receive special attention. Regards, Brent Koch, P.E.

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.
