The code implicitly disallows the use of friction to resist seismic forces, hence the use of "self-anchored" tanks does not appear a great idea. Besides, such tanks will be quite susceptible to wind when empty.
That said, we routinely use friction between the footings and the soil to resist seismic forces. How does that work from the code and just rational standpoints?
