350.3-06 Seismic Design of Liquid-Containing Concrete Structures and Commentary

Accordingly, the basic scope, format, and mandatory language of Chapter 21 of ACI were retained with only enough revisions to adapt the chapter to environmental engineering structures. This approach offers at least two advantages:.

As the loading side of seismic design is outside the scope of ACIChapter 21, it was decided to maintain this practice in ACI as well.

Rather than combining impulsive and convective adi by algebraic sum, this standard combines these modes by square-root-sum-of-the-squares.

– ACI Seismic Loads for Liquid-Containing Rectangular RC Tank

This standard prescribes procedures for the seismic analysis and design of liquid-containing concrete structures. Instead of assuming a rigid tank for which the acceleration is equal to the ground acceleration at all locations, this standard assumes amplification of response due to natural frequency of the tank. The user should note the following general design methods used in this standard, which represent some of the key differences relative to traditional methodologies, such as those described 350.3–06 ASCE These procedures address the loading side of seismic design and are intended to complement ACISection 1.


This required the inclusion of all types of tanks—rectangular, as well as circular; and reinforced concrete, as well as prestressed.

Choose Product Language English. To produce a self-contained set of procedures that would enable a practicing engineer to perform a full seismic analysis and design of a liquid-containing qci.

Provisions similar to Section 1.

Errata are not included for collections or sets of documents such as the ACI Collection. Concrete Structures for Containment of Hazardous Materials. The full and complete returned product will be accepted if returned within 60 days of receipt and in salable condition.

Any applicable errata ac included with individual documents at the time of purchase. This meant that these procedures should cover both aspects of seismic design: It makes it easier to update these seismic provisions so as to keep up with the frequent changes and improvements in the field of seismic hazard analysis and evaluation. To establish the scope of the new procedures consistent with the overall scope of ACI These items are not eligible for return.


The seismic force levels and R-factors included in this standard provide results at strength levels, such as those included for seismic design in the International Building Code IBCparticularly the applicable connection provisions of IBC.
