Influence of Horizontal Seismic Excitation on Tank – Fluid – Soil Seismic Interaction

Open access


Ground-supported tanks are used to store a variety of liquids. During the earthquake activity the liquid exerts impulsive and convective effects. This paper provides theoretical background for hydrodynamic pressure that is being developing during an earthquake in the liquid storage ground-supported rectangular container – the endlessly long shipping channel, is grounded on hard soil or sub-soil.
