Design of concrete structures for the storage of liquids – revised Standard published
Standards New Zealand has published a revised Standard, Design of concrete structures for the storage of liquids, NZS 3106:2009, which supersedes NZS 3106:1986. The Standard provides design requirements and guidance, including design loads and seismic design criteria. NZS 3106 is a technical document used by engineers to design concrete tank structures for facilities such as water storage reservoirs and wastewater treatment plants.
The Standard was revised in line with current practice and new technology, and to align with the loadings requirements given in the AS/NZS 1170 series of Standards (especially NZS 1170.5 Structural design actions – Earthquake actions).
NZS 3106:2009 Design of concrete structures for the storage of liquids
This Standard provides design information that meets the requirements of the New Zealand Building Code and is intended to be used by engineers and others involved in new storage tank projects. It provides a basis for designing concrete structures for the storage of liquids that will require only limited periodic maintenance to remain serviceable for their design life, and will not allow an uncontrolled, rapid loss of the liquid contents in extreme events such as a major earthquake.
Supersedes NZS 3106:1986 which remains current until further notice.
