Re: Water Storage Tank

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I've been asked to approve the use of asphalt paving equipment over an existing concrete water storage tank (flat slab without beams, with column capitals and drop panels).
I wasn't paying attention when this thread started. Sorry. The usual procedure for buried tanks is the so-called Boussinesq calculation which figures the soil stress under a concentrated load. It's used for buried tanks and pipelines. If you'll do a Google search on 'Boussinesq' and tanks, you'll find some technical references and papers.
