detention basin

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Title: Message
I'm being asked to design a detention basin for a civil engineer.  the hydrology has already been done, he just needs structural detailing/design.  Having never done anything like this, i naturally have a few questions that i hope some of you may be able to answer.
1.  I tried searching for some sort of standard of design, but came up empty handed.  Do any exist?  Sources?
2.  I assume i'm just designing a big conrete box to hold water (19' wide x 53' long x 6.5' deep).  So Live Load would be the full volume of water, or can i consider something less?
3.  How about lateral loads?  How do i account for the water sloshing about?
4.  Should this be constructed w/ corrosive resistant materials? 
Any insights, thoughts, help is appreciated.
