Design of Liquid Retaining Shells

  • M. Farshad
Part of the Solid Mechanics and Its Applications book series (SMIA, volume 16)


Liquid retaining shell structures are made of steel, concrete, reinforced plastics, and other reinforced materials; they may have circular shape or other geometrical forms; they could be located underground, over of the ground, and / or on elevated towers. Circular containers could be roofed by cones or domes; they could also have cones or flat plates as their base. In the present chapter, emphasis will be mainly placed on the design aspects of reinforced concrete circular containers.
