ACI MANUAL OF CONCRETE PRACTICE 1991. PART 4. BRIDGES, SUBSTRUCTURES, SANITARY, AND OTHER SPECIAL STRUCTURES. DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF CIRCULAR PRESTRESSED CONCRETE STRUCTURES WITH CIRCUMFERENTIAL TENDONS
This report provides recommendations for the design and construction of circular prestressed concrete structures (commonly referred to as "tanks") that use tendons for the circumferential prestressing. These thin cylindrical shells of either cast-in-place or precast concrete are commonly used for liquid and bulk storage. Vertical post-tensioning is often incorporated in the walls as part of the vertical reinforcement. Recommendations are applicable to circumferential prestressing achieved by internal or external tendons that are stressed after they are placed within, or on, the wall. Emphasizes procedures to prevent corrosion of the prestressing elements. Also covers the design and construction of dome roofs.
