Re: Underground Water Tank in Gulf

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
You may need to run a buoyancy calc to make sure the tank does not float during high ground water conditions.  If it does want to float then you need to hold the tank down.  Also watch uplift on the bottom slab due to hydraulic pressure.
