Tank Calculator (Generic

)
A companion to Water Storage by Art Ludwig

Cylindrical tank with domed roof

This sheet performs the same calculations as the previous worksheet, but allows you to define and compare your own materials. Try setting up each column with different parameters, and watch how volume of water contained, and the amount of material required changes. Given tank dimensions, determine volume and surface area, and amount of material required (for ordering concrete). Given density of tank material, determine load on ground under tank, and stress on reinforcement. Fill in numbers under the in one or more columns. Read calculated values below.

Tank volume Height Wall thickness (av) Roof thickness Floor thickness Roof rise/tank diameter Floor beyond walls Density of material Hoop spacing Major reinforcing diameter
