RE: Tank Seismic Restraint

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am assuming that the tank is steel with two saddles. 
The tank can be deigned based on the Zick method.  References include:
       Pressure Vessel Handbook, MegyesyISBN 0-914458-18-3
       Tubular Steel Structures ,Troitsky, Lincoln Arc Welding
These references include for steel saddle design.
Also, see TM-5-809-10 , Chapter 13, Appendix F -Structures other than Buildings at

Subject: Tank Seismic Restraint

I am working on a project that involves the installation of a horizontally mounted 4' dia x 12' long water filled bullet recovery tank that is required to be seimically restrained..
Does anyone have any good references for the design of a cradle and anchorage for this type of tank?
