2. If
thickness exceeds 200mm, the reinforcement is provided in double layers. A
minimum cover of 25mm is provided along the liquid retained face and the cover
is increased by 12mm (37mm) if the wall is subjected to aggressive soil or

HOOP TENSION AND BENDING
MOMENTS IN CYLINDRICAL TANK WALLS

CYLINDRICAL TANK WITH FLEXIBLE BASE:

The wall is designed for
hoop stress, for which circumferential horizontal steel is provided. Minimum
reinforcement is provided along the vertical direction

1) Design
a circular water tank with flexible base for a capacity of 4 lakh litres with
the tank having a depth of 4m, including a free base of 200mm. Use M20 concrete
and Fe415 steel. Area of water tank = Volume / Height

= 400 / 4 = 100m^{2}

Provide a diameter of 11.5m

The height of water to be retained = 3.8m

The wall is subjected to hoop tension acting along the
circumferential direction. The hoop tension per metre height is given by,

Hoop
tension = *g*.*h*.*D* / 2 = (9.81 x 3.8 x 11.5)/2 = 214.34 kN

Permissible stress in tension as per IS3370 for Fe415
steel is 150 N/mm^{2}.

A_{st} required = 214.34 x 10^{3} / 150 =
1428.9 mm^{2}

Spacing = 1000.ast / Ast, ^{à} 16mm @ 140mm c/c

Thickness of tank is adopted based on the tensile stress
concrete can take.

Minimum thickness as per
empirical formula is, t_{min} = (30h + 50)mm where h ^{à} m

= 30 x 3.8 + 50 = 164mm

Provide a thickness of 170mm.

Minimum reinforcement is provided as vertical steel.

Minimum Ast is 0.3% for 100mm section and 0.2% for 450mm section.

Therefore, for 170mm thickness, Ast
required is 0.28% of c/s

A_{st} = (0.28/100) x 1000 x 170 = 476mm^{2}

Provide 8mm @ 100mm c/c

__Curtailment of reinforcement__:

At 2m height,

Hoop tension = *g*.*h*.*D* / 2 = (9.81 x 1.8 x 11.5) / 2 = 101.5335 kN

Ast = 101.535 x 103 / 150 = 676.89 mm^{2}

Provide 10mm @ 110mm c/c (or) 16mm @ 290mm c/c

__Design of base slab__:

Since the base slab rests
directly on the ground, a nominal thickness of 150mm is provided and a minimum
reinforcement of 0.3% of c/s is provided along both ways and along both the
faces.

0.3% of c/s ^{à} 0.3/100 x 150 x 1000 = 450 mm^{2},
Required 8mm @110 mm c/c Provide 8mm @220 mm c/c on both faces.

Below the base slab, a layer of lean concrete mix M20 is
provided for 75mm thickness with a layer of tar felt.

__Design of dome__: -
Roof covering for cylindrical water tanks

[A dome acts as a roof covering for cylindrical water
tanks. The dome slab is cast between the ring beams provided at the top edge of
the side walls of the water tank. The dome is designed for meridonial thrust
and hoop force].

2) In the above problem,
design a spherical dome having a central rise of one fifth the diameter.

Height = 1/5 x 11.5 = 2.3m

Radius of curvature of the
dome [R] R^{2} = (R -2.3)^{2} + 5.75^{2}

^{à} R =
8.33m

Cos? =
6.04 / 8.33
= 0.724

The dome is subjected to
meridonial thrust and hoop force, for which the permissible stress should be
within permissible compressive strength of concrete.

?_{c} = 5 N/mm^{2}

Assume thickness of dome as 100mm

Meridonial thrust, T = *WR / 1+ *+*Cos**q*

w? is the
loading of

and any live load acting on it.

Self weight of slab
= 0.1 x 25 = 2.5 kN/m^{2 }= 2kN/m^{2}

W = 4.5 kN/m^{2}

T = 4.5*x*8.3 / 1 +0.74 = =
21.46kN

Meridonial thrust = T / (c/s area) = 21.46 x 10^{3}
/ (100 x 1000) = 0.21 N/mm^{2} < 5 N/mm^{2} The hoop stress
developed in dome slab is given by,

The provided 100mm section
is sufficient. Minimum reinforcement of 0.3% of c/s is provided both ways.

0.3% of c/s = 0.3/100 x 1000 x 100 = 300mm^{2} ^{à }8mm
@ 160mm c/c

Design of ring beam:

The horizontal component of
meridonial thrust acts on the ring beam. The horizontal thrust, A_{st}
= H_{L Comp} / _{s} ? where, H_{L Comp} = T.Cos? x D/2 ^{3}
x=0 .7421x5.7546=91 .3kNx 10 A_{st} = 91.3 x 103 / 150 = 608 mm^{2}

Provide (2#
16mm?^{à}(626mm+2#) 12mm?)

Size of ring beam is obtained based on tensile stress
relation,

Here ring beam is not
subjected to water load. So, permissible tensile stress for M20 concrete is 2.8
N/mm^{2} (Annex B-3.11) of IS456-2000.

?_{ct} = 2.8 N/mm^{2}

F = T Cos?
x D/2 =
21.46N x 0.74
x 5.75 =
91.3

^{è} A_{c}
= 25314mm^{2}.

Provide 150 x 150 mm size of ring beam with (2# 16mm? +
2# stress is developed, the steel will take the tensile stress.

DESIGN OF CYLINDRICAL WATER TANK: [With fixed base]

For cylindrical tanks fixed at the base, bending moment
and hoop tension are developed,

whose values are based on non-dimensional parameter, *H*_{ }_{2} /
Dt .
The vertical reinforcement is provided for the bending moment developed
and the transverse reinforcement is provided for hoop tension developed.

The coefficients of the non-dimensional parameter *H* _{2}_{/Dt} are given in Tables 9 (HT) and 10 (BM).

Maximum hoop tension =
Coefficient x W.H.D/2 Bending moment = Coefficient x w.H^{3}

Where, R ^{à}
Radius of tank, D ^{à}
Diameter of tank

3)In the above problem, design a water tank for fixed
base condition. Permissible stresses

Min. depth required = 88.23mm

= 0.28/100 x 1000 x 170 = 476 mm^{2} Provide 8mm @ 100mm c/c

The maximum of Ast for BM at
A_{st} {_{maximum}} is provided as vertical reinforcement
[555mm^{2}]. Provide 8mm @ 90mm c/c

Provide 10mm @ 130mm c/c as
vertical reinforcement. If the reinforcement is provided as double layers on
both the faces, the spacing is doubled.

Provide 10mm @ 260mm c/c as
vertical reinforcement along the two faces with transverse hook reinforcement
at 12mm @ 260mm c/c along both the faces.

__Design of base slab__:

Provide a nominal thickness
of 150mm for base slab with 0.3% distribution steel [8mm @ 200mm c/c, along
both faces, both ways].

Also
provide a haunch of size 160mm at the junction of the wall and the base slab.

When L / B < 2,
cantilever moment generates at the base and maximum bending action takes place
along the continuous edges of the side walls in both short and long direction.
When L / B > 2, only cantilever action takes place in long wall. Whereas, a
short wall is designed for horizontal bending and cantilever action.

[Cylindrical ^{à}

__When L/B < 2__,

i) Cantilever moment at base = w.H.h^{2} / 6

where, h = 1m or H/4, whichever greater

ii) For horizontal bending of the walls, the maximum
moment is found from,

a)
Fixed end moments,

PL^{2}/12 and PB^{2}/12

b)
Positive moment at midspan,

M_{f}
= PL^{2}/8 & M_{f} = PB^{2}/8

Where, M_{f} is the
final moment at the supports (junction between long wall and short wall). The
maximum value is taken for design. Here,

P ^{à} water pressure given as p = w(H -h)

For the maximum moment, the area of steel along the
longer direction and shorter direction are found from the relation,

Where, P_{L} & P_{B} are tension in
long and short walls p -Pressure exerted by water

Tension
in the walls is given by, P_{L} = p x B/2 & P_{B} = p

1. Design a rectangular tank
of size 4m x 6m with height 3m. The tank rests on firm ground. Use M20 concrete
and Fe415 steel. Take design constants j = 0.853 & R = 1.32.

Pressure exerted by water, p = w (H -h)

Where, h = 1m or H/4 ^{è} 1m or 0.75m = 1m [greater]

P = 9.81 (3 -1) =
19.62 kN/m2

To find the final moment at
the junction of long wall and short wall based on the fixed end moment and
distribution factor, the moment distribution is done.

Joint A:

The stiffness along the long wall and short wall are the
same ( *I*_{1} =*I* _{2} ),
since uniform thickness of wall is adopted along long wall and short wall.

Short wall is stiffer than the long wall.

M_{FAB} = pL^{2} / 12 = 19.62 x 6^{2}
/ 12 = 58.86 kNm (3p)

M_{FAD} = pB^{2} / 12 = 19.62 x 4^{2}
/ 12 = 26.16 kNm (1.33p)

Mf + 2.33p - 2.33p

Mf = 2.33p = 2.33 x 19.62 = 45.72kNm

Moment at midspan,

The reinforcement is
provided for maximum moment generated. Therefore, maximum moment generated in
the water tank is 45.72kNm.

Provide 20mm spacing
? required bar, along horizontal direction is 150mm Provide 20mm @ 300mm c/c
along both faces in the horizontal direction, along short wall and long wall.

Min. Ast = 0.3% of c/s

mm^{2}

Spacing is provided for the
maximum of the above two [66mm^{2}] Required, 10mm @ 110mm c/c

Provide, 10mm @ 220mm c/c as
vertical reinforcement along both the faces. For the base slab, provide a
nominal thickness of 150mm and minimum A_{st} of 0.3% of c/s.

A_{st} = 0.3/100 x
1000 x 150 = 450 mm^{2} Spacing of 10mm bars required = 170mm

Provide 10mm @ 300 mm c/c along both faces, both ways.

Provide 75mm lean mix with a
layer of tar felt which acts as a water bar, provided between the tank and lean
mix concrete.

2) Design a water tank of
size 4m x 9m with height 3m. Use M20 concrete and Fe415 steel. The design
constants are j = 0.853 and R = 1.32.

Since L/B > 2, the tank
behaves such that the long wall acts as a cantilever member with moment w.H^{3}/6
and short wall is subjected to both cantilever moment and horizontal bending
moment.

__Long wall__:

Cantilever moment at base = w.H^{3}/6

Where, h = 1m or 3/4m = 1m =
9.81 x 3^{3} / 6 = 44.145 kNm __Short wall__:

Cantilever moment = w.H.h^{2}/12 = 9.81 x 3 x 1^{2}
/2 = 14.715 kNm

Horizontal bending moment =
pB^{2}/16 = 19.62 x 4^{2} / 16 = 19.62kNm (Where, p = w (H -h)
= 9.81 (3 -1) = 19.62kN/m)

Maximum of the three moments
= 44.145kNm

Required - 10mm @160mm c/c on both faces.

Distribution steel:

100mm - > 0.3%

450mm - > 0.2%

220mm - > 0.26%

Min Ast = 0.26% of c/s = 0.26 / 100 x 1000 x 220 = 572mm2

Min. Required - 10mm @ 260mm c/c, which is less than the
above two values.

__Base slab__:

Since base slab is resting
directly on the ground, nominal thickness of 150mm is provided and minimum
reinforcement of 0.3% of cross-section is provided both ways along both faces.

A_{st} required =
0.3% of c/s = 465mm^{2}. Provide 8mm @ 200mm c/c.

Below the base slab, a layer
of lean concrete mix is provided with 75mm thick tar felt layer between them.

__DESIGN OF UNDERGROUND WATER TANK__

Design of underground water
tank is similar to that of tanks resting on grounds (for rectangular water
tanks based on L/B ratio), where additional moment if any due to the earth
pressure on the side walls need to be considered. If the soil is submerged, pressure
exerted by water is also considered. Thus the side walls are checked for the
two critical conditions,

i) No earth pressure with _{w}pressure(H-h) from
wa

ii) Earth pressure exerted on wall under tank empty condition, -?p_{w})+?=H/3_{w}.(?

The tank has to be checked
for uplift water pressure for which frictional resistance should be sufficient.

Design an underground water
tank of size 12m x 5m with height 4m. The density of soil is 16kN/m^{3}
and coefficient of friction between soil and concrete is 0.15. The soil is
saturated. Here, L / B = 12 / 5 = 2.4 > 2

The tank walls are checked for two critical conditions,

i) No earth
pressure with _{w}pressure(H-h) from
wa

= 10
(4-1) = 30kN/m^{2}

ii) Earth pressure
exerted on wall
under-?_{w})+?_{w}H
tank

= 48kN/m^{2}

Where,
h = 1m or (H/4 = 1m)

Therefore, the maximum
pressure is used in finding out bending moment on the wall. Long wall,

Provide 10mm @ 200mm c/c

__Short wall__:

A_{st(VL)} = 370.8 + 320 = 690.8 mm^{2}
< A_{stmin}

Provide Astmin, 10mm @ 200mm c/c

A_{st(HL)} = 2173.09 mm^{2}

Provide 16mm @ 180mm c/c

__Check for uplift__:

The tank is checked for
uplift pressure. When the uplift pressure exceeds the downward load due to the
self weight of the tank and the frictional resistance required. The base slab
is projected all around thereby increasing the downward load. The pressure of
submerged earth and water at the bottom of the base slab for 1m length of the
wall is found. The frictional resistance of the tank is found by multiplying
the coefficient of friction between soil and concrete with the pressure
exerted.

Assume the thickness of the
base slab as 400mm and provide a projection of 300mm all around the water tank.

Downward load due to self weight of tank:

Long wall = 2 x 12.64 x 0.32 x 4 x 25 = 808.36 kN

Short wall = 2 x 5 x 0.32 x 4 x 25 = 320 kN

Base slab = (12.64 + 0.6).(5.64 + 0.6) x 0.4 x 25 = 826.176kN

Total = 1955.136 kN

Weight of earth retained over projection,

Long wall = 2 x (12.54 + 0.6) x 4 x 0.3 x 16 = 508.42 kN
Short wall = 2 x 5.64 x 4 x 0.3 x 16 = 216.576 kN

= __724.996__
kN

Total
load = **2680.132 kN**

Frictional force required = 3635.174 -2680.132 = 955 kN

Pressure exerted by water at a depth of 4.4m,

p = H -/?_{w})3_{w}.+H(?

= ^{4.4}_{3} (16
-10) + 10 x 4.4 = 52.8 kN/m^{2}

Considering 1m length of wall, the force exerted is = ½ x
H x p

= ½ x 4.4 x 52.8 =
116.16kN/m The frictional resistance per metre length of wall = µ.F = 0.15 x 116.16 = 17.424 kN/m For the
entire perimeter of the wall, the frictional resistance offered,

= 2
x (12.64 + 5.64) x 17.42 = 637 kN < 955 kN

Hence the downward load due
to self weight and cantilever projection of bse slab is insufficient against
the uplift force. The length of projection has to be increased. Increase the
base projection to 0.7m, all around.

Downward load due to self weight of tank:

Long wall = 2 x 12.64 x 0.32 x 4 x 25 = 808.36 kN

Short wall = 2 x 5 x 0.32 x 4 x 25 = 320 kN

Base slab = (12.64 + 1.4).(5.64 + 1.4) x 0.4 x 25 = 988.416kN

Total = 2116.78 kN

Weight of earth retained over projection,

Long wall = 2 x (12.54 + 1.4) x 4 x 0.3 x 16 = 1257.98 kN

Short wall = 2 x 5.64 x 4 x 0.7 x 16 = 505.34 kN

= __1763.32__
kN

Total
load = **3880.1 kN**

Frictional force required = 4349.03 -3880 = 469.03 kN
< 637 kN

(Frictional force offered by walls)

p = 52.8 kN/m^{2}.

The water tank is safe against uplift.

The base is design as a
continuous slab, supported between two short walls, for the self weight and
weight of side walls.

__Design of base slab__:

Loading on the base slab
includes the self weight of base slab and weight of side walls. Considering 1m
strip,

Weight of base slab = 7.04 x 0.4 x 25 = 70.4 kN/m

Weight of walls = 2 x 4 x 0.32 x 25 = 64
kN/m

Total = __134.4 kN/m__

Reaction at the support =
134.4 x 7.04 / 2 = 473.09 kN B.M. at the support = w.l^{2}/2 = 134.4 x
0.86^{2} / 2 = 49.7 kNm

B.M. at centre = 134.4 x
3.522 / 2 -473.09 (2.66) = -425.8kNm [sagging moment]

[D = 400mm, d = 400 -35 = 365mm] Provide 25mmø in two layers [both faces].

Provide 25mm @ 100mm c/c on
both faces.
