Steel Tanks: Calculating Sloshing Forces

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hello:

In a designing a circular steel tank with a supported roof (rafters
supported on a column at the center), there is a mention in the API and AWWA
to take into account the forces from the sloshing of the liquid on the
column.  But there is no mention of how to calculate these forces.

Does anybody have any kind of reference on this materail?

Thanks
