Crack Width and Crack Spacing Calculation in Concrete

Cracking occurs in concrete when the restrained strain exceeds the tensile strain capacity of the concrete. In critical elements like water retaining structures, crack...

Minimum Area of Steel for Imposed Deformation Cracking

Minimum reinforcement is provided to ensure that yielding does not occur, and by so doing, cracking is adequately controlled in a concrete section. The...

Modeling and Analysis of Spherical LPG Tanks

Spherical tanks are used in several applications such as water storage, nuclear cooling, and storage of liquefied gases such as liquefied natural gas (LNG)...

Effects of Temperature Difference on Cylindrical Tanks
