A Design Example for a Circular Concrete Tank PCA Design Method
CVEN 4830/4434University of Colorado, Boulder Spring Semester 2008Prepared by Ben Blackard

Circular Tank ExampleH = 16 ftD = 90 ftt6 ftgradegroundwater tablefluid density inside tank = 65 pcf
c

= 60,000 psisoil bearing capacity = 2,400 psf Walls above the groundwater table should be designed using a lateral earth pressure equivalent tothat developed by a fluid weighing 40 pcf, below the groundwater table use 90 pcf.
