Elevated Water Tank Evaluation

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Our firm is being asked to evaluate an existing elevated water tank for
corrosion and structural adequacy.

I know there have been some threads on tank design, but it seems most are
related to fuel tanks.

Anyone know what national standards are used for the design/evaluation of
elevated water tanks?  Design considerations include typhoon (hurricane)
wind loading as well as seismic.

Any help would be much appreciated.
