Design of Water Tanks

An Guide for Civil & Structural Engineers involved in Design of Water Tanks or Reservoirs

This section is suitable for practicing Civil Engineers, Structural Engineers, Water supply Engineers, Graduates and Students in Engineering.

This section will provide a series of specialized articles for those involved in the Design of Water Tanks or Water Reservoirs using Reinforced Concrete or other materials like Steel, Aluminium, or HDPE. A practical and simple approach is emphasized throughout, so quick references can be made. For more theoretical approach, readers are to refer to Book Sections.

Engineering Tutorials, Calculation Examples, Design and Worked Examples, Drawings & Details are all available for download or purchase.

Engineering Training & Courses are conducted regularly.

Should you have any queries, check out the Forum, or Engineers Q&A Section, or Contact Us. Technical Support is only provided to Registered Members.
