Seismic Design of Elevated Tanks Inside a Building

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
To ll:

I am designing the support of several elevated tanks on legs inside a 
building. ASCE 7-10 Chapter 15, Table 15.4-2 gives the R value for such, 
but then Section states that "Tanks and vessels that are 
supported within buildings...shall be designed in accordance with Chapter 
13". Trouble is, Chapter 13 does not give an Ap and Rp for such structures.

Any advice? Also, should "sholshing effects" be considered in tanks 
carrying liquids, and, if so, is the requirements for this in the IBC/CBC 
or ASCE?

Thanks in advance.

Larry Hauer, S.E.
