Re: Ring Beams/Ring Girders

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Say you have a tall tank, for example a grain silo,  which is supported on a slab on grade with a thickened edge.  (Bolted down with anchor bolts or whatever).

If an overturning moment is applied to the tank, there will be a twisting (torsional) moment applied to the thickened edge section, which is acting as a ring beam.
