A Design Aid for Structural Engineers Circular Storage Tanks and Silos, Third Edition effectively explains and demonstrates the concepts needed in the analysis and design of circular tanks. Tanks have to sustain high-quality serviceability over a long lifespan. This text covers computing the stresses in service in several chapters. It considers thermal stresses and the time-dependent stresses produced by creep and shrinkage of concrete and relaxation of prestressed steel. It also examines the effects of cracking and the means for its control. This text is universally applicable; no specific system of units is used in most solved examples. However, it is advantageous to use actual dimensions and forces on the structure in a small number of examples. These problems are set in SI units and Imperial units; the answers and the graphs related to these examples are given in the two systems. What’s New in This Edition: Presents a new chapter on recommended practice for design and construction of concrete water tanks and liquefied natural gas tanks Includes a companion Website providing computer programs CTW and SOR Provides material on CTW (Cylindrical Tank Walls); with simple input, it performs analysis for load combinations anticipated in the design of cylindrical walls with or without prestressing Contains the finite-element computer program SOR (Shells of Revolution); it performs analysis for design of axisymmetrical shells of general shapes This guide is an authoritative resource for the analysis and design of circular storage tanks and silos.

With increasing world-wide investment in the construction of water treatment plants, sewage works, water storage systems and oil and petrochemical complexes, the practical value of simplified design methods for concrete tanks is obvious. The second edition of this best-selling book presents solutions to many of the practical problems involved in the analysis and design of tanks. It grew, in part, from the author's work as a member of the American Concrete Institute technical committee on circular pre-stressed structures. Containing six new chapters, it will be an immediately productive design aid in any civil engineering design office. Part 1 provides an analysis of circular storage tanks examining design, methods of analysis and potential problems. Part 2 contains practical design tables.

Previous papers have described wind tunnel measurements on isolated and grouped storage bins. silos and tanks of circular cross-section. In this paper, distributions of fluctuating and peak pressures on the walls of both isolated and grouped silos are described. They were generated using the techniques of eigenvector analysis of the covariance matrix, and "coincident peak" sampling.

This comprehensive textbook combines classical and matrix-based methods of structural analysis and develops them concurrently. It is widely used by civil and structural engineering lecturers and students because of its clear and thorough style and content. The text is used for undergraduate and graduate courses and serves as reference in structural engineering practice. With its six translations, the book is used internationally, independent of codes of practice and regardless of the adopted system of units. Now in its seventh edition: the introductory background material has been reworked and enhanced throughout, and particularly in early chapters, explanatory notes, new examples and problems are inserted for more clarity., along with 160 examples and 430 problems with solutions. dynamic analysis of structures, and applications to vibration and earthquake problems, are presented in new sections and in two new chapters the companion website provides an enlarged set of 16 computer programs to assist in teaching and learning linear and nonlinear structural analysis. The source code, an executable file, input example(s) and a brief manual are provided for each program.

These two volumes of proceedings contain nine invited keynote papers and 130 contributed papers presented at the Third International Conference on Advances in Steel Structures (ICASS '02) held on 9-11 December 2002 in Hong Kong, China. The conference is a sequel to the First and the Second International Conferences on Advances in Steel Structures held in Hong Kong in December 1996 and 1999. The conference provides a forum for discussion and dissemination by researchers and designers of recent advances in the analysis, behaviour, design and construction of steel structures. Papers were contributed from over 18 countries around the world. They report current state-of-the art and point to future directions of structural steel research, covering a wide spectrum of topics including: beams and columns; connections; scaffolds and slender structures; cold-formed steel; composite construction; plates; shells; bridges; dynamics; impact mechanics; effects of welding; fatigue and fracture; fire performance; and analysis and design.

Following previous work in which point pressure measurements on isolated low aspect ratio circular structures such as storage bins, silos, and tanks were described, this report describes measurements of wind loads on silos arranged in an in-line group of five. As well as point pressures, area-averaged pressures on wall panels of finite area were carried out using the pneumatic aver- aging technique. At small spacings between silos, the region of positive pressure on the windward side spans a larger angular sector of the circumference than that for an isolated silo. For wind directions near normal to the line of the silos, high negative mean pressures and high r.m.s. pressures occur near the point of shortest distance to the adjacent silos.
