STRESSES IN CIRCULAR TANK FLOORS AND WALLS SUBJECT TO SETTLEMENT ON UNIFORM SOILS

Circular tanks resting on compressible soils suffer ascisymmetrical settlement and the tank floor takes on a dish-shaped form. The paper gives the bending stresses in the tank floor and walls due to the differential settlement of the floor center with respect to the tank walls. The analysis is useful for the choice of foundations of such cases.
