Circular Storage Tanks and Silos by Amin Ghali
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


With increasing world-wide investment in the construction of water treatment plants, sewage works, water storage systems and oil and petrochemical complexes, the practical value of simplified design methods for concrete tanks is obvious. The second edition of this best-selling book presents solutions to many of the practical problems involved in the analysis and design of tanks. It grew, in part, from the author's work as a member of the American Concrete Institute technical committee on circular pre-stressed structures. Containing six new chapters, it will be an immediately productive design aid in any civil engineering design office. Part 1 provides an analysis of circular storage tanks examining design, methods of analysis and potential problems. Part 2 contains practical design tables.
