Subject: Concrete Tank Design HelpMy question deals with the transfer of moment from the base of a tank wall into the tank slab. I know that this connection can be assumed closer to pinned of fixed depending on the reinforcement detailing.
But, if this connection is assumed close to fixed, what kind of reinforcement is necessary to complete this transfer of moment into the slab? I typically see 90d standard hooks used as dowels at the same spacing as the vertical wall rebar… Is this tension development length provided by the hook adequate for transfer? Or does the standard hook EF result in more of a pinned connection since the length of rebar parallel with the bottom slab rebar is very small?
Thank you in advanced for your help or any direction you can provide? Mark Seifried, EIT
