Eurocode 2. Design of concrete structures. Liquid retaining and containing structures

Status : Current, Under review   Published : July 2006



BS EN 1992-3:2006 covers additional rules to those in Part 1 for the design of structures constructed from plain or lightly reinforced concrete, reinforced concrete or prestressed concrete for the containment of liquids or granular solids.

Principles and application rules are given in this part for the design of those elements of structure which directly support the stored liquids or materials (i.e. the directly loaded walls of tanks, reservoirs or silos). Other elements which support these primary elements (for example, the tower structure which supports the tank in a water tower) should be designed according to the provisions of BS EN 1992-1-1.

This standard supersedes DD ENV 1992-4:2000.
