This standard prescribes procedures for the seismic analysis and design of liquid-containing concrete structures.
Seismic Design of Liquid-Containing Concrete Structures and Commentary
These procedures address the loading side of seismic design and are intended to complement ACISection 1. The following paragraphs highlight the development of this standard and its evolution to the present format:.
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 structure. This meant that these procedures should cover both aspects of seismic design: To establish the scope of the new procedures consistent with the overall scope of ACI This required the inclusion of all types of tanks—rectangular, as well as circular; and reinforced concrete, as well as prestressed.
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.
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.
350.3-06 Seismic Design of Liquid-Containing Concrete Structures and Commentary
Provisions similar to Section 1. This approach offers at least two advantages:. It makes it easier to update these seismic provisions so as to keep up with the 30.3-06 changes and improvements in the field of seismic hazard analysis and evaluation. The seismic force levels and R-factors included in this standard provide results at strength levels, such aaci those included for seismic design in the International Building Code IBCparticularly the applicable connection provisions of IBC.
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 350.3-06 in ASCE Instead of assuming aaci 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.
Rather than combining impulsive and convective modes by algebraic sum, this standard combines these modes by square-root-sum-of-the-squares.
