RE: Steel Tanks: Calculating Sloshing Forces

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Are you looking at AWWA D100-84?  The 1996 edition, Section 13.3, shows how
to calculate it.  I understand the newer API 650 is moving in this direction
also.

	Subject:	Steel Tanks:  Calculating Sloshing Forces 

	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
